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.

List List Liszt List

From Fireblossom in the Imaginary Garden: "Today, let's make a list. Not a word list. Let's write a poem with a list in it, or a list that IS a poem."  She elaborates here. 

My response to the challenge:

inventory roll
of jousting field enclosures
leaning to one side


females in my life
wife mother daughter sister
seven granddaughters


of compositions by Franz
the Liszt list


counting this one
the list of quasi-haiku
totals up to four


Imaginary Garden With Real Toads


  1. How creative...who would have thought to "haiku" a list? Great!

  2. Great thoughts here.. That compendium together with the women in your life..

  3. Love that you used haiku to make a list.

  4. I really like that first one.

  5. "Compendium"--what an exquisite word, and used so beautifully here.

  6. Those who know me know i hate haiku, but I have to say that i did enjoy this light-hearted foursome. The Liszt List made me snicker, and the last one as well. 'm glad to see an interesting new face at Fireblossom Friday. Thanks for being part of it!

    ps--and thanks for your cool comment at my place.

  7. another Liszt! ~
