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.

Carpe Diem #530 - MIST

I will not gainsay anyone's religious beliefs.

I will say that I do not share them.


the palm of god's hand
no matter how hard i peer
i see naught but mist


early morning mist
droplets form on moose antlers
the honk of a goose

drops gather on silk
shining gems as the mist lifts
weaver's veil of pearls 



  1. A lovely series of haiku ... I'd like to tell you that you're link took us to the spiderweb and not to your haiku. Hope you're able to fix it, because it's such a shame others might miss it!

  2. Left a comment but didnt see it picked up (will try again)
    The mist with the spider's web has the perfect effect and you have captured it well

  3. Extraordinary great haiku trio JzB but your spider haiku is a masterpiece and that photo fits it so well ... thank you for sharing.
