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 #340, ''beautiful dreams''

For December we are sharing haiku inspired by the music of Adrian von Ziegler.  Today's selection is the quasi-Keltic selection, Beautiful Dreams.

high upon a mountain
sitting amid the pine trees
together we are one


I deliberately did not look at Kristjaan's before writing mine, but I see a common thread between them.

Carpe Diem #340


  1. Being one and together is certainly a fulfillment of one's dreams! Nicely JzB


  2. Are those geese in the photo? Is there going to be a recrudescence of Moose and Goose? Oh, wait! Sorry. Now I see they are but swans. Still, they, and your haiku, are lovely.

    Dust and Dreams

  3. I think that sounds like a dream...

  4. Thanks, guys.

    Moose and Goose will pop up from time to time.


  5. Feeling as one in the beauty of nature is an awesome feeling. Love your haiku.

  6. There is nothing like a mountain top experience! ;)

  7. Very much in common. I never look at anyone's but Kristjaan's before writing mine, and mine was very much intentionally inspired by the post. I love this. It is also like mine, too. We were all thinking of similar things but all have their own magic

  8. Sounds like a dream to me. I never look at anyone's either. I think most of us do not want to be sidetracked from fresh thoughts.

  9. Now that is a beautiful dream... and ideal for a romance in the works. Love it.

  10. What a coincedence JzB, ... no I don´t think that´s coincedence ... it´s the bond between members of our haiku-family.


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.
