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 Special #59, Southard's "widening rings"

Inspirational Haiku by O. Mabson Southard:

a patter of rain ...
the lily-pad undulates
on widening rings

I'm not sure this is in the spirit of Southard, but it's the image that came to me:

see her undulate
on the dance floor - hips moving
in widening rings

[but please - no twerking]

Carpe Diem Special #59


  1. I can see her dance... wonderful -- a brave woman

  2. Ah yes, this puts a smile on my face--entrancing ;)

  3. I think this haiku is in the 'mood' of the one by Southard.


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.
