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 #239, curiosity

~ 1 ~

my ignorant quest
that is why i blog

~ 2 ~

old man even now
after all these years wonders
about life and love

~ 3 ~

moose and goose are not
curious like the cat - and
they are still alive

~ 4 ~

spider's curious
only about one thing
next fly's arrival

~ 5 ~

envious is green
passionate is purple

  1. That second haiku is in my opinion the best, I like the imagery you've painted in there.

  4. Like Spider, I'm ready for the next morsel too, although I would prefer it not to be a fly!

  8. The second one is perfect. I really love it and I believe it to hold a lot of truth.
