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 1280 - Wheel of Creation

"Haiku is not only the poetry of nature, but it is also a way to find that peace. While strolling through nature we become one with nature, become part of nature (as it was once meant to be) and than we experience the beauty of our Earth. We have to cherish her beauty, Earth is the only source to find peace of mind and heart. Isn't that what we all see as our goal?"

Perhaps this cartoon is relevant.

you and i
in that tantric moment
we are one


we are all seekers
in philosophy


even here on earth
we are made of stardust
one with everything


even moose and goose
in the darkling forest mist
we breath the same air



  1. 'even here on earth
    we are made of stardust
    one with everything'
    This haiku reminds me of 'Woodstock' by Joni Mitchell.
    I love the
    '...moose and goose
    in the darkling forest mist'!

  2. The third one is my favourite.

    much love...
