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 #659

Servant's Day (Yabu-iri)

"On about the sixteenth of the first month, servants and apprentices were allowed to go home for a short visit."

After the holiday, of course, it's back to the daily grind. 

These are a bit off the wall.

resting her flat feet
for tomorrow's big event
the dance marathon


resting in the weeds
brief respite for moose and goose
when hunters depart


see how the time flies
each new day another web
no rest for spider


  1. I like all of these, but the first one cracked me up!

  2. no rest for the weary - delightful threesome

  3. Yup... the spider who doesn't weave doesn't eat!
    Nice trio :)


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.
