The Lighter Side of JzB

Here you will find photos, poetry, and possibly some light-hearted foolishness. For the Heavier Side

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's Oasis (May 2013)

Had great fun performing this last Friday

 In case it's not obvious, this is not my orchestra

~ 1 ~

is your oasis
filled with grass and bunnies
mine has a moose

~ 2 ~

mine has a moose
and the honking of a goose
watch out for spider

~ 3 ~

once i was depressed
playing brought comfort and peace
true story

~ 4 ~

silence is
not found in my oasis
we make joyful noise

~ 5 ~

music lifts me
calms my spirit soothes my soul
it's my oasis

This is a fun blog. Light-hearted banter is welcome. Snark is not. If you want to fight, find my other blog.

Play nice, and we'll all have fun.
