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.

The 2/24 Tuesday Platform


On 50 Shades

I had 50 hot cups today
Of milky and sweet Earl Grey,
‘Cuz that’s what it took

To get through this book.
Now babe are you ready to play?

On 50 Shades of Gumby

I’d say it’s nifty and keen
To get kinky with someone who’s green
But I’d prefer a fuzz muppet 
To a clammy clay puppet
It’s more cozy, ya know what I mean

On and on

The cat couldn’t hack up his fur ball
After he swallowed the gerbil
He gets no relief
As he struggles to breath
And he’s turning 50 shades of purple

Summa Appoligica

These modern times most poets won’t
Object to rhymes made on a slant
Keep everything right 
With rhythm that’s tight
And rhyming can be nicely bent

On learning the word "doggo"

My doggie avoids every fight
‘Cuz fights give him such a bad fright

So he’ll always try
To carefully lie
Doggo in the still of the night

On trading verses with Mad Kane on Facebook

I’m dancing with Maddie Begun
Kane and we’re having such fun
Tripping light and airy
With vocabulary
Now that the beguine has begun

That's all folks

Imaginary Garden With Real Toads


  1. I think you have had a lot of fun with these. I found the ones on the 50 Shades hype especially amusing.

  2. Ha, yes the 50 shade one's was great, and you did great on the rhythm that to me is more important the rhymes with a limerick..

  3. wow, how delightful, a really fun read of your Limericks

    thanks for linking in at Monday WRites
    much love...

  4. …of earl grey. Funny! All are quite clever

  5. I loved all the smiles you gave me with this one.

  6. A limerick is amusing that has
    A theme with some razzamatazz.
    It's a dull day
    With just shades of grey,
    But it's brighter when adding some Jazz!
