The Lighter Side of JzB

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 #208, Divination


Did you see that coming?

~ 1 ~

men think they can read
god's plans and the future
in cards and stars - ha

~ 2 ~

the past is gone
present is fleeting - future
is a mystery

~ 3 ~

skeptic that i am
there have been moments when i
have known the future

~ 4 ~

moose and goose
look up to the stars but live
in the present

~ 5 ~

in divine circle
orb weaver sees her future
a nice bug for lunch

Carpe Diem #208


  1. Oh the moose and goose is the best one! - it is rally a nice simple haiku there.. nice set

  2. Welcome back! Such a pleasure to see you again and smile as I read your haiku.

  3. As some wit has said: "Man plans, God laughs."

  4. Welcome were missed !

  5. I enjoyed all five of your Haiku. My two favourites were numbers 1 & 2.
    If only we knew god's plans .... on second thoughts, maybe it's best being kept in the dark!

  6. Plenty to think about here:) The last is particularly intriguing

  7. Ah I've missed the smiles you bring my day...welcome back JzB :)


  8. Good to see you here again JzB. Thank you for your wonderful series of haiku on divination and future.

  9. Love the moose and goose one... just perfect.. and so glad to see you again.
