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.

Here is my first ever performance of this old Tommy Dorsey classic.

Not perfect - I warbled a few notes.  But overall, I'm pleased with it.

that song tommy played
so many decades later
i played it too


  1. beautiful!! if only chopping woods was a good song!

  2. What an excellent performance.. and the sentiment is great.

  3. Great performance and fun haiku ~ xoxox

    artmusedog and carol (A Creative Harbor)

  4. Footnotes are often necessary, because we humans just don't "get it."

  5. 'Wax on, wax off'

    "Waxing sentimental" - perfect.
