Popcorn

Pan
Oil
Pour it out slow.

Kernels
Falling
“Plink” they go.

Heat.
Wait-
Sizzle, sizzle, smell.

Ahhhh!
Sniff,
I’m under a spell!

Listen.
Look.
Stir, so they don’t stick.

Pip…
Pop!
Put the lid on quick!

Pippity
Poppity
Pop poppoppoppoppoppoppop! pop . . pop . . . . pop . . . . . . . . . . .pop.

Crunch,
Munch, munch.
I just can’t stop!

    Just read this one, Sue. Must have missed it first time around. Love it! I am a popcorn nut and, from now on, when I pop some I'll think of you! Now...a little more butter...ahhh, perfect!
