The Lighter Side of JzB

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

Retirement Blues. (There be dragons!)

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 #662

Water Lilies

Among these lilies
in Monet’s pond
Basho’s water sound

floating lotus bud
gives yellow back to the sun
green frog is silent


among lotus leaves
orb weaver spins quietly
wary of the frog

  1. If I were the spider, I'd be wary of the frog too!

  2. WOW! That second haike is really a beauty JzB ... a very nice imagery ...
