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 #544, Mask/Masque

Today's quote from Kalil Gibran's Sand and Foam:

 "Even the masks of life are masks of deeper mystery"

two lovers naked
except for the masks they wear
and neither one knows


the face of a cat
but someone might be lion
thereby hangs a tale

behind my mask
is beauty or ugliness
what you will find


moose with his antlers
goose preening her down and quills
still no masquerade


Carpe Diem #544, Mask/Masque


  1. oh .. the mystery behind the masks.. that's where excitement is.

  2. I like the subtle humor of the second one.

  3. Lots of wisdom and lots of humour - very philosophical take JzB!


  4. Love the humor threading through the second one.


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.

I like to return visit, when I can - but I need to find you. If you have multiple blogs, please leave a direct link to the appropriate post.
