A Fierce Imagination

It sprung from the grass –

a hungry plant with sharp teeth

bit at my bare feet.

  1. So far, I have never set my rake down with the teeth upward. If I ever do that, arcane quantum mechanical calculations predict that I will probably step on it soon afterward. The rake’s handle is too short to reach my head, but it could give me a memorable clunk in the junk.

      • Being a mad scientist, I responded to your scepticism with measurement. My rake has a 43-inch handle and would actually clunk me in the stomach. Now my scientific scruples tussle with the urge to take poetic license in a haiku about a Demon Rake:

                A short-handled rake
                waits (teeth up) to deliver
                a clunk in the junk.

        Ending with “a clunk in the gut” would not have the same zing. 😦

  2. I stepped on a rake once. It was a good bang. When I composed myself, I headed to the garden shed to look in the mirror and estimate the damage, but my young daughter run behind me screaming ‘Don’t look, don’t look!’ Was she right! 🙂
