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.

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge #49,

From Kristjaan:

This week I have chosen for a haiku by one of our latest family-members Jazzytower of Thoughts and Entanglements. She wrote this haiku in response on Jane Reichhold's prompt "decay" and I think she has done a great job with that prompt. 
Tan Renga looks very similar with Tanka, but there is a difference. A Tan Renga is written by two poets and a Tanka by one poet. Tan Renga is a short chained verse with two links.
