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 Special #103, Jim Kacian's "city morning"

city morning
a crane lifts its shadow
up the wall

I saw the title of this entry and immediately wrote the two haiku found below, without reading further.

It was surprising to find I was rather close to Jim Kacian's wavelength.

no rooster call
wakes the city dweller
honk of a semi



old man wakes up
on a cardboard shrouded grate
shambles down the street


duty beckons
 people places things to do
no time for roses



  1. These are beauties JZB ... so in tune with Jim's.

  2. You've caught the city in all its grit and glory, using a handful of words.

    San Miguel Morning

  3. Ah.. that second one I wish I had written that 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.
