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 #218, Suzushi (cool, coolness)

~ 1 ~

a state of temperature
or a state of mind


~ 2 ~

hot summer night
time to take note of some
cool jazz

~ 3 ~

in summertime
i drink cool tea
served over ice

~ 4 ~

moose and goose
know how to keep cool
in a flowing stream

~ 5 ~

in a shady spot
orb weaver plays it cool
waits for a hot bug

~ 6 ~

and a bit of silliness

if you suzushi
like i suzushi oh oh
