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 #213, Tango (Boys' Day or Boys' Festival)

My grandson Nate (left) and his team won their first baseball tournament

no samurai swords
these boys go to battle
with balls and bats

~ 2 ~

i fly one carp kite
so too does my daugher
my son can fly two

~ 3 ~

what young boy
doesn't love dinosaurs
castles and knights

~ 4 ~

young moose calf
dreams of his first set
of fuzzy antlers

~ 5 ~

gosling looks around
takes a gander at the goose
tries to egg her on

~ 6 ~

brave young male spider
plucks his way across her web
hopes to hit and run
