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 Tokubetsudesu #51 classical way of writing haiku

Greetings friends and fellow haijin.

Once again, after a hiatus I return to Cape Diem.   July is a vey busy month for me, but today a have a few spare moments.

Most of June was lost.  on the 2nd, my mother suffered a stroke.  She went down hill rapidly, and her funeral was three weeks later.  She was 94, so I think her age stacked the deck against her.  The picture shows her [standing] and her twin sister on their 94th birthday in May

never quite identical
now there is but one

Now, back to the present.  The challenge of this episode is to write a classical haiku inspired by this photo.





within those pages
from masters to their minions
what am i to learn
