Sunny Saturday in May

What could be more irritating
than the nasty violence of a chain saw
shredding a perfect day like this?

    You are so right!

  2. Gives us more of those days and less of those chainsaws.

    I hear this poem….loudly.

  4. vivinfrance says:

    Lovely picture. And your little poem oozes irritation!

  5. Andy says:

    My goodness! How right you are.

  6. Judy Roney says:

    How true. The photo you post and the visions of a peaceful, sunny, day in May does not lend itself to chainsaws.

  9. The violence of the chain saw, a perfect image. That noise and the racket of leaf blowers, which serve no earthly purpose other then to blow leaves from one’s own yard onto the curb. Then they blow back again! The world’s most useless invention (other than Sarah Palin… but she invented herself!). Amy

    I agree about the chainsaw. I have a leafblower, though. I just use mine to blow the cut grass off my driveway and into the grass. Consider me a repeat offender. 🙂
