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 Special # 132

Kantooka  magatte shimatta  magarikado

Under a cold
street lamp
I’ve just turned
the corner

turning the corner
lamp light fades in the distance
where am i going


leaving the harbor
high waves and strong wind ahead
uncharted waters



  1. Wonderful pair of takes on the inspiration.

  2. Both haiku are wonderful ~ very contemplative in a way ~

    Happy Weekend to you,
    artmusedog and carol

  3. "Where am I going?" I wonder that all the time--about me!

    Turning the Corner

  4. That first haiku gives me a feeling of loss ... where do we go? Thanks JzB.
