An axe's natural swing!

Axe’s natural swing
Golf club’s downward arc can split
the fairway even

Tasty feel discerned
Familiar taste of Mom’s food
Firewood driven

Note: 
1. A Pro once remarked a golf swing
was as easy as swinging an axe
2. Some mothers swore firewood
contributed to good taste of food

  2. As easy or as difficult to swing an axe... I have seen many failing with an axe... and I wonder how is a scythe then... maybe it's more difficult than playing golf... (have never played golf)...

  3. Two interesting takes, Hank.

    Well done.

    Cheers!

  5. Firewood or grilled - changes the taste of the food completely, doesn't it?

  11. I've heard that axe/club comparison. I think it might not ring true. I'm great with an axe or sledge. Golf clubs? Not so much!

  12. I've axed my clubs - for some reason, they kept slicing the wrong way~ ~

  14. I chopped down a tree as a youngster for our wood-burning stove and it was the hardest thing I'd ever done!
