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.

This fellow - or someone very similar to him just crashed into the window of my family room, about 4 feet from where I'm sitting.

By the time I got outside, he had flown into the neighbor's tree, then soared over to another tree, evidently OK.

I didn't get a good close-up look.  The one I pictured at the link above is almost certainly an immature Cooper's Hawk.  

I thought it was a haiku moment.

always seeking battle
belligerent little hawk
crashes my window



  1. These belligerent lil fellows are always spoiling for a fight,eh? ;-)Clever use of words-loved it:-)


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.
