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.

Images in the Garden

The challenge is to write a poem in any style matched to one or more images.   Simple as that.

I'm short on time this week - playing Sibelius's 2nd Symphony this evening - and, of course, a day late.  So one short simple verse.

fox on an island
in shimmering images
thinking of rabbits


Afterthought: I like it even better with 1st and 3rd lines reversed.


  1. I like this image too...and your words arranged either way

  2. I'm glad someone wrote to this sweet image - yes, he does appear to be longing for something... Hope your Symphony went well.

  3. I'm sure it would love to see a bunny hop.

  4. I think you have entered the fox's mind.. good one.

  5. I liked it both ways....hope the rabbit stayed away from the fox.


This is a fun blog. Light-hearted banter is welcome. Snark is not. If you want to fight, find my other blog.

Play nice, and we'll all have fun.

I like to return visit, when I can - but I need to find you. If you have multiple blogs, please leave a direct link to the appropriate post.
