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 Haiku Writing Techniques #8

I love this example:

just one leaf
struggles with the wind
like Basho

My thoughts:

shining green gecko
between the tree and the grass
hunting the cricket


learn about the rose
ponder its lovely blossoms
ponder its thorns


the secret ingredient
in light beer

  5. The darn good ones, JzB. The last one made me giggle.
