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 Special #54, Kikaku's "The beggar!

Inspirational haiku by Kikaku

the beggar!
he has Heaven and Earth
for his summer clothes

I'm not religious, but this immediately made me think of Matthew 6:28.

no need for raiment
be like flowers in the field
who never spin

Carpe Diem Special #54



  1. What a coincedence JzB that was my first thought too, but I took another angle. Awesome haiku.

  2. Although they do angle to the sun. ;)
