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 # 660

This guitar rendition of John Coltrane's modal composition Impressions has a nice dreamy feel

Claude Monet, Haystacks (Sunset)

I was just looking at this collection of Arya Stark gifs snipped from the new Season 5 Game of Thrones trailer.  I guess it made an impression on me.

under the haystack
in the sun's last slanting rays
looking for needles


  1. I loved Arya in G.O.T. In the books, anyway ... have no idea what she was like on screen. o.O

    Yes, I can see Arya looking for needle. :)

  2. That is a nice haiku, very, and an original way of looking at sun rays

  3. were there mo? opie

  4. Wow!!! haiku and thank you for the Sunday jazz serenade

    much love...

  5. Looking for needles in the haystack .... well that's quit an impression ... I love Game of Thrones never seen the series but have read the novels.
