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.

Carpe Diem #279, Calling Wisdom

~ 1 ~

whence comes wisdom
information and knowledge
plus experience

~ 2 ~

i tried to call wisdom
but it left neither number
nor forward address

~ 3 ~

slightly off target
wanted to be a wise man
wound up a wise guy


Carpe Diem #279


  1. The 3rd haiku is really nice. Thank you JzB for your daily effort to share haiku with Carpe Diem.

  2. Slightly off target is better than missing the target complete, I suppose!

    A Voice of Wisdom

  3. Love your tag "smart assery". Enjoyed your walk down "where-is-wisdom lane".

  4. ah ending up a wise guy is not that bad really..

  5. All three are delightful but I especially like the third one. If it's any consolation I'd rather have coffee with a wise guy than a wise man. Far more entertaining.

  6. Agree with Carol! I, too, want to come to coffee with a wise guy who uses words like smart assery!!

  7. you may disappointed to learn that i only drink decaf
