The Lighter Side of JzB

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

Retirement Blues. (There be dragons!)

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 #216, U no Hana (Deutzia flower)

Just a single haiku from me today, but I'll admit I'm rather pleased with it.

drift of white flowers
remembering winter
after snow has gone

Carpe Diem #216



  1. drift of white flowers
    remembering winter
    after goose returns


  2. For me, a haiku like this just makes my evening - everything just feels ..peaceful.Wonderful.

  3. Wonderful masterpiece JzB, and I like the one Mark gives in his comment with 'your' goose in it. (smiles)

  4. It does look like snow and you found a wonderful photo to match your beautiful words.

  5. Love your haiku...
    spring's signal winter is over,
    and white is okay before Memorial Day
