It sprung from the grass –
a hungry plant with sharp teeth
bit at my bare feet.

Thank goodness for aha moments! Thank you Sheldon. 🌿 👾 🌱
Ouch!! It will be a while before I have to worry about those plants 🙂
With how warm the weather’s been around here, I know those plants will be biting sooner than normal!

Oh, something we don’t have to worry about here yet!
A hungry plant with sharp teeth…my favorite!
I liked how your toothy plant collapsed and yellow, stinky smoke appeared! Too funny. 👾
The question is: what kind of screech would a plant make? Would it sound like a house cat? or a congested leopard? Hmmm….
Hmm…. I kinda think your plant would sound like a Bison growl. Lol. That sounds funny, but have you ever heard a bison growling?? Listen to it here:
Haha — my older sister had a cake shaped like a bison at her wedding. I didn’t have a piece, so please don’t ask me what bison tastes like \”/
Why was the cake shaped like a bison?
That’s a great question!…I don’t know.
I hope someone kind will be able to answer my burning question one day. I love the dark, but I don’t like being left in it. 😳
a beautiful Laurel & Hardy moment 🙂
Laurel & Hardy always make a moment more beautiful 😀
That must have hurt. Well done my dear.
Yeah, my feet have teeth marks — I’ve never seen anything cooler! Lol. Thanks Andrew 😉
LOL Sorry for that.
You’re gonna rake in the Likes
with this one Rose.
Ah, I always love to see you enjoying yourself, Alan! ❥ ツ ღ ☻
I’ve trod on a few of those in my time. A good photo and description of OUCH!
I’m sorry! Those toothy plants have no boundaries — kinda like my mom (just kidding… sort of 😀 )
Seeing the everyday objects with new eyes. ^^
Oh, I hope you didn’t get rid of your old eyes! They were so pretty 🙂 Haha!! Thank you, Francis. 👀
Haha, funny! Thanks for the sweet kindness, Rose ñ.ñ
Careful! The plant is baring its jaws there. 🙂
Lol. When I’m hungry, I look exactly like that plant! Scary!! 😀
Haha 😀 😀
Those unperceived teeth get us every time! I’ve been bitten by my own imagination more than once. ❤
Uh, oh!! Your clever words just made me swoon! xo
Very good, we are all so hungry at heart.
Ah, you’re so witty and so right! ❤️💋
Ooh, I have an image of it biting your bare foot and then the rake handle coming up to say hello to your eye, just like in a Tom and Jerry cartoon. I hope it was all just poetic imagining!
I was knocked silly when I was about six years old by the handle hitting square between the eyes. And it did seem like it had just “sprung from the grass.” :0
I completely empathize, Doug! Those blasted rakes!! 😀
Ouch! I hope you were okay. Sounds painful!
More embarrassed than hurt.
Well, I’m glad you were okay. 🙂
That did happen exactly how you described it but when I was a teenager. Haha!! I love Tom & Jerry!
Yikes! Sorry to hear that. I’m glad it wasn’t recently, though, but safely in the past where it’s no longer painful.
It’s only painful when “someone” keeps bringing it up. Haha!! I’m only teasing you, darling… kinda. 😀
Oops, sorry! Better not mention that acme anvil, then. 🙂
Lol. Remember the coyote and the road runner? That anvil got the coyote every time! 🙂
It did, poor thing. 🙂
Nice poem.. Fierce huh!! Hope it didn’t pain much.. Haha.. Have a great time.. 🙂
Very fierce and mean! It wasn’t too bad. Thanks Jackie 🙂
Hahah… Nice.. Glad that it didn’t pain much.. :p Have a a great day.. 🙂
I hope that I never step on another rake ;D
It happened to you, too! Aw, I’m sorry, but something tells me that rakes will stay out of your way from now on. Stay on Bernard Boulevard, and all you’ll need to worry about are six eyed aliens. 👀 👀 👀
I will keep my eyes open haha!
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.
Ouch! 😀 Are you that tall, Mel? 👖🌭
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. 😦
Bravo, Mel! I loved your wickedly funny haiku, darling!! Okay, I was thinking for a moment there, that you were at least 7 feet tall! Lol. xo
I cannot look at a rake without imagining the comedy moment of stepping on it and being hit on the head by the handle.
Haha! You usually appear more serious than humorous that when you say something funny, I have to read it twice and delight in it. 😀 Yes, it’s not so funny to the person getting “bitten” by a rake, but it’s hilarious watching it happen to someone else! xo
I am nowhere near as serious as I may come across!
I would love to see that! 🙂 Incidentally, I was looking for the sexy haiku poems you had mentioned earlier, but it’s difficult maneuvering through your blog. I’m able to pull up the archives on mine, but I can’t on yours. I’m kinda bummed. 😦
That’s weird…I may need to reorganise at some point. I am halfway through my free space and am thinking about long-term solutions to my blog/s
Oh, wait, I see the archives! Yes!! Did you just put them there? Sorry; I might be thinking of someone else’s blog. Doh! You have other blogs??
No, but when I run out of space I might split into two or three. I haven’t yet decided.
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! 🙂
Ow! I’m sorry 😦 What a darling daughter you have! It doesn’t appear you’ve sustained any permanent damage, so that’s a good thing, I hope! 🙂
Thank you! 🙂 Had got a cucumber-looking lump between my eyes 🙂 Pity we didn’t have mobile phones in the early 80s to take a selfie.
