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 - 1/30



The nightlight is on in the bathroom.

I check my closet, making sure there is nothing lurking there.

Quickly now, up onto the sheet and under the covers, eyes pressed tight shut, breath held.

“Are you ready?” asks the voice from under my bed.

“I’m coming out now.”

Reduced to a haiku-shaped tercet

now it is bedtime
all my preparations made
wish i were alone

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.

Cheers!
