The Lighter Side of JzB

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

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's Tan Renga Challenge Month #XV, Lolly's ''crossing the footbridge''

Also unbidden -- the outre turn my imagination took:

crossing the footbridge
a sound that comes unbidden ...
my wild beating heart  

from the murky depths below
strange faces rise through the waves       (JzB)

or ---

like the wild beat of goose wings
at the lowing of a moose                            (JzB)

Bringing my old friends back into it.

Take your pick.

Carpe Diem's Tan Renga Challenge Month #XV


  1. Ah, glad to see moose and goose active again ~ great completion (both) ~

  2. I like the both but the first better. Is this perhaps inspired by Tolkien? It is reminiscent of a scene from "The Lord of the Rings".

  3. great completions that stirs the imagination. ☺

  4. great completions that stirs the imagination. ☺

  5. I like that first completion the most Jazzbumpa ... a spooky completion of this Tan Renga ... awesome

  6. Oh the first one was really spooky...
