The Lighter Side of JzB

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.

C D Special #136


in the ceaseless sound
of the water
there is Buddha

"The goal of this CD-Special is to write/compose an all new haiku in the same sense, tone and spirit as the one given ... and because Santoka Taneda was a fore stander of the 'free-style' haiku you don't need to count syllables or use kigo or one of the other "classical rules" of haiku. Maybe that makes it easier, but I am not sure of that."

still topped with ice and snow
silent water
