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's Tan Renga Challenge #15, Managua Gunn's "Cricket's last song"

The challenge is to write a companion 7-7 verse for the presented 5-7-5 provided by regular CD contributor and world-wise traveler Managua Gunn, aka "Yer Pirate."  

Cricket's last song
even the prostitute hears -
stops waving her fan

if we scrape legs together
will she sing her song for me

    I think this is my favorite tan renga of the lot.


  2. This is perfect... actually it's a proper renku response if I understand correctly from google... LOL

  3. I like this completion JzB ... really a great Tan Renga.


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