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.

Carpe Diem #771 natsu no nami (summer waves)

Are the waves of summer different from other seasons? Maybe ... 

mysterious waves
rippling upon the surface
what lies underneath


hiding under waves
silver scales in the ripples
catching water bugs


  1. Some how your second haiku brought a wave ;) of memories. Swimming in a lake and the minnows nibbling along our legs. Love all the what ifs in the first take, too.

  2. I can't help but wonder if Orb Weaver might become a hapless victim. I guess we shall see, won't we? ;)

  3. :-) beautiful vision .. it reminds me of a riddle! Bastet

  4. The things that lie beneath are the things that we find most alluring.
