The Lighter Side of JzB

Here you will find photos, poetry, and possibly some light-hearted foolishness. For the Heavier Side
of JzB

Retirement Blues. (There be dragons!)

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 Tan Renga Challenge Month #XVII, Jazzbumpa''s " my little green lawn''

I'm delighted to see one of my haiku in the tan renga challenge.

This one actually pleases me quite a bit.

my little green lawn
dreams about the pampas grass
i dream of the stars                                      
(c) Jazzbumpa

in their pale shimmering light
the universe stands open                              (c) Jazzbumpa

I'll be around to check all your completions in a day or so. 

Thanks for playing along.
