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 #297, Kiku (chrysanthemums)

bright chrysanthemums
reflecting the sun's orange
last flowers of fall

Carpe Diem #297


  1. They are so gorgeous, perfectly colored to go with the leaves!! :)

  2. Beautiful image of mums...and your haiku can stand alone and that image would pop up in my head.

  3. In your yard? It looks like a little ball of sunshine!


  4. Yes, I love them perhaps because I love the fall.

  5. Beautiful, and I love when they became a ball like that.


This is a fun blog. Light-hearted banter is welcome. Snark is not. If you want to fight, find my other blog.

Play nice, and we'll all have fun.

I like to return visit, when I can - but I need to find you. If you have multiple blogs, please leave a direct link to the appropriate post.
