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 #344, ''dreamtide''

I can't say I love Adrian von Ziegler's music. But it is pleasant and worth a listen.  Today's selection, Dreamtide is rhythmically interesting.  The Keltic sounding melody is definitely in 5.  When it goes to just percussion, a have a very difficult time deciphering the basic pulse.  Seems like it goes into 6, but the initial beat is elusive.  All of this contributes to the dreamy feeling of the piece.  I'm also struck by the elven appearance of the character in the vid picture.

float with the elf-maid
on the ethereal tide

oh those mocking clouds
fabulous frothing fruit frappe
make the sky feel blue
