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's "Little Creatures" #4

I wrote about toads just a few days ago.   But last night when I arrived home from rehearsal, I saw another little one, about half the size of my thumb, trying to hop under my car.  I shooed him out of the garage so the door wouldn't crush him.

black toadling pauses
pondering in the doorway
safety or freedom

Carpe Diem's "Little Creatures" #4


  1. Go for it, little toadling!
    Loving this haiku moment very much :)

  2. What a choice at such a young age ... profound haiku.
