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.

Cold Flash in the Garden

I immediately thought of the song displayed below, and that guided my entry.

I really couldn't go anywhere else.

in pale perfection
she lies supine on a plinth
we are both breathless


  1. I feel that this is the voice of a mortician, I hope that he will be happy staying breathless.

  2. Short and sweet, and I agree with Bjorn about the voice of a mortician!

  3. Nicely done. These few words say it all.

  4. Indeed! there is a breathless quality to this image.

  5. Now thats what i call a cool math of mood. THE haiku and music were mafe for each other


  6. Nearly done. All the elements in your post complement each other

  7. Death becomes her? I too feel a sense of a funeral in this piece. Great job... You leave us all wondering, deciding what it means.

  8. I'm glad that you've chosen this aspect - the image is so provoking, and it leaves much to wonder about, given Man Ray's nature and ideas - but you've captured that air of death - she certainly hold this unreal/surreal quality to her. And I love the use of "supine" - because we're left to debate with ourselves, is she truly dead, or lying in wait? Wonderful!

  9. Wow, you packed a lot into those few words.

  10. Nice Touch with the Horn... said it all.

  11. Yes, both and neither. Inspired!
