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 #280, The Conversation

~ 1 ~

conversing converse
obverse communication
no conversation

~ 2 ~

moose and goose
communing together
with no common tongue

~ 3 ~

spider won't converse
with those who visit her web
but she makes her point

~ 4 ~

after all these years
sometimes a smile or a nod
says more than mere words

~ 5 ~

i've said i love you
more than ten thousand times
it never gets old


Carpe Diem #280

  5. I love all of these. You never disappoint me JzB!!

  6. I like them all too. A lovely grouping.

  7. While the first one makes me smile, the last one makes me nod about how true, simple and wonderful it is. Enjoyed your set of all, JzB.
