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 #277, Magic Fields

Today I'm tired, unispired and I have a totally undeserved headache.

This is the best I can do

Lo siento

mysterious life
blooms and dies each passing year
magic or science

Carpe Diem #277


  1. very real and yet contemplative haiku ~ well done ~ thanks, carol, xo

  2. Nicely done despite the headache. Hope you feel better. On a related note, cold things on the forehead often give immediate relief, and more often than not dehydration causes headaches. Feel better!

  3. Good One JzB ... hope you're feeling better.

  4. Don't be sorry. This haiku says much about the wheel of life and the passing seasons. I think there's more magic than science:) Feeling under the weather frequently changes our perspective and often let's the muse come from the subconscious.

  5. Magic! Hope you find some magic for the headache too! Feel better!

  6. Thanks friends.

    Headaches come and go. It didn't to much to change my perspective.

    Though sleep deprivation sometimes does.


  7. "Food for thoughts!" was the first thing that came to my mind after reading this haiku.
    PS: I hope you will feel better and as inspired as always.

  8. Pobrecito uno!

    I hope your headache has vanished by now and that the mysteries of life are at least a tiny bit clearer.

  9. Oh I hope for recovery... headaches sucks... love your thought... indeed. (but I still vote for science)

  10. Quite evocative through a headache. Hope you are better now. I napped off my earlier headache but they are daily during meds withdrawal which totally sucks. I long for a simple headache where four Advil makes it disappear. Hugs if okay.
