Popping Popcorn

Popcorn’s an exciting treat

and popping it is quite a feat.

Kernels in the popper go,

where heating them is rather slow.

But then –




I watch the kernels and think ”Wow!”

Their transformation is a sight

from hard and gold

to soft and white.

I then eat popcorn really fast

cause making more is such a blast!

  1. Reminded me of my dad getting out a big kettle, pouring some oil in, and then the wait. The sounds of the kernels just starting to pop, then picking up pace until it slowed down again. And the smell filled the kitchen. Microwave is not the same…

    1. I love that you love it!! I understand the superhero comic book thing with the KAPOWS etc. I never thought of it before, but I expect I will never see it any other way now.
