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.

Five Sentence Fiction - Maps

"How much farther is it, Maud?"

"We should be getting close," she said.

They got off their bi-tryke, sat at the roots of a bramblewood tree, and studied the old map.

"Still so far," Glyness said with a longing sigh, "but he swore it would be worth our while"

They remounted the bi-trike and pedaled deeper into the gathering fog.

  1. Well written using the prompt and the picture :)

  2. Let's hope it is.
    A great take on the prompt.

  3. Hopefully they find it before it gets dark. :)

  4. Ohhhh.. I sense that something not so positive is going to be found at the end of their ride! Great little tale!


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.
