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 #680

A wetland near my house

in the green meadow
amid the buds and insects
lurking orb weaver


in a sea of green
the bright glow of yellow blooms
bees cannot resist



  1. Very fresh, nice feel to these haiku, a reminder of summer, with vivid colours

  2. Awesome photo and as Hamish already has said it gives me a feeling of longing for late spring or early summer ... well done!

  3. It is so nice to think of enticing nature for the bees...soon!!! lovely photo!

  4. Like the bees, there are certain things that I can't resist. I will, however, not mention them!

    The Killing Meadow

  5. Lovely meadow and enticing haiku. Now if there are no snakes or chiggers I am ready for a walk!
