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.

Some Thoughts on Life Love and Pain

we‘re wound together
like brambles of a thorn bush
i will not wound you


for a brief moment
our tumble in the hay loft
i’m falling for you


my moth to your flame
scent of lust that you emit
might be pheromones


she promised her love
on a lamb’s wool filled with fleas
i was fleeced on fleece


i sang her love songs
rasping loud and out of tune
not a sound idea


after the cloud burst
in clothes all wet and clingy
she burst into tears


ink stamp on paper
this official document
does it seal our love


once like an hour glass
now so much sand has drifted
more like a tumbler


your love has wandered
I can fill that empty spot
until he returns


in a still moment
i could instill in your heart
loving thoughts for me


left for another
bring the pieces of your heart
i will comfort you


with my silliness
am i the joy of your life
or just a sad clown


  1. Wonderful! I am still chuckling from the, 'fleas, fleece, fleeced.'

  2. Ha.. not a sound idea... indeed .. Love that.
