Every day visits*
From Moose, Goose, and Orb Weaver
All seized by Haiku

"Why moose and goose?" you may ask. Back on 2/04/13 Pirate wrote a haiku with an elk in it, and I responded with
one with a moose and then included him every day. A few days later in comments Mystic asked "Where's the goose?"
So I started including her with this post on 2/07. A week later on the 14th, Mark Readfern
asked for and received a spider. The rest is history.

*Well, most days, anyway. Grant me a bit of poetic license.

Carpe Diem #196, The Wheel of Fortune (X) Tarot

~ 1 ~

i'm no believer
tarot zodiac prayer
each tool can focus

~ 2 ~

the wheel of fortune
in it you might see god
i see just chaos

~ 3 ~

focus your spirit
bring the hermit to the wheel
seek wisdom inside

~ 4 ~

on the fortune card
goose would fit she has wings
draw them on the moose

~ 5 ~

spider sees the wheel
its great radiating orb
reminds her of home


Carpe Diem #196


  1. Spider gets my top vote today! :) This was not a fun prompt for me but you did well with it!Wheel of Fortune

  2. I can really relate to #1 and #2.

    Whatever happened to simple prompts like grass and bunnies?

  3. #3 ~ very realistic I think ~ more fitting with my philosophy ~ love how you bring humor to most of your haiku ~ very creative ~ ^_^

    Moose, goose and spider recovering from their spin out of town ~ good to see ^_^

  4. "bring the hermit to the wheel"

    Sounds like a recipe for torture to me! :)

    On the Roll

  5. This was very complicated. I just rely on the inner wisdom. Too many directions on this one. I like bringing the hermit "to the wheel". But my inner wisdom doesn't need the wheel. He knows already ;-O Love all of your haiku today. Very thoughtful. Spider brought the chaos back down to serenity :))

  6. and what memory it is the one of one's home...

  7. I think I share your views on fortune wheels -
