The Lighter Side of JzB

Here you will find photos, poetry, and possibly some light-hearted foolishness. For the Heavier 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 #661

Poplar Impressions

poplar reflection
green image on blue water
fades in the sunset


swishing poplar switch
on a young one's bare behind
makes an impression

Leaving nothing to chance, I'll point out that I am strongly opposed to corporal punishment.


  1. That first haiku is a beauty JzB a nice impression caught in three lines, your second however ... brought a smile on my face ... your old school in educating ... :-)

    1. thank you
      i am quite happy with the first one

      the second - i don't know where that came from


  2. I like the way your colored font choice reinforces the content of your words.

  3. I had to laugh at the second one. The first one is great!

  4. Loved the first and remembered the second ;-)
