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.

a kingfisher dives

does he ever dream to be
a cormorant

watch kingfisher from the shore
munching on leaves

  4. #3 and 4 got me giggling. I think like orb spider. Less energy expended is best.

  5. Enjoyed your set:) Hope Moose and Goose enjoyed their meal.

  6. At least Moose and Goose are in no danger of becoming Kingfisher's prey!

  8. the third delighted me...well-done
