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 #551, abandoned

Sunset on my street - Nov 28, 2012

shorn of green raiment
bare limbs raised to the pale sky
grasping emptiness


  1. Bare branches abandoned, without leaves anymore ... that's the link to autumn. Thanks JzB. I couldn't really link this prompt to autumn, but now I see it ...

  2. bare limbs, lovely haiku and your photo depicts the end of autumn so well...the bareness, not the early colourful part...abandonned.

  3. Those skeletal remains has a special beauty though

  4. grasping emptiness is a lovely, achy image. :)

  5. Beautiful work there, haiku and photo...grasping...yes...
