The Popcorn in Us



'Go out on a limb'

Bear the heat

and expand

pop pop pop!

Let the ideas out,

plain or flavored hot.

pop pop pop!

Chew it and have some fun

like how you deal with some.

pop pop pop!

Identical popcorns, found one?

We’re one of a kind that’s why.

pop pop pop!

Ready the popcorn

for the movie of our lives.

pop pop pop!

How’s the movie show?

Plain? Salted? Buttered?

pop pop pop!

    Sounds like popcorn heaven with so many flavors represented. A really light and fluffy poem, simply delicious! Now where did I put my popcorn popper?

  5. Lol, buttered for me please πŸ™‚ and movie by your choice … Lovely!

      Thank you Blaga! My favorite movie is Life is Beautiful — enjoy it with your buttered popcorn πŸ™‚

      • dragonkatet Says:

        I LOVE that movie, spoon! But it is hard to find people in this area who appreciate foreign films. Such a great movie and so poignant. πŸ™‚ Nice to know there are other fans of it out there.

        • bendedspoon Says:

          The movie made me laugh loud, cry silently, and appreciate people enthusiastically.

          I smile too each time I remember Roberto Benigni walked over the chairs and people to receive his Oscar Award for Best Actor in 1999.

          Wishing you more laughters! πŸ™‚

    I love the popcorn theme and likening it to life’s decisions, flavours, just getting in there and getting on with things! At least that’s what I take from it … love it, and love the graphic! πŸ™‚

    Haha cute! i like the plain and salted one..

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Chef Tony came up with so many flavors and I tasted some like green tea, four cheese,etc. but at the end of the day my taste bud looks for plain with a bit of salt. hmm do i sense an excuse to chomp non-stop?

  28. tonirand Says:

    Nice πŸ™‚

    I never thought of Popcorn this way before (now I’ll think of you every time I eat some. lol)

    Here you go, making me think again πŸ™‚

    Keep the flavors coming. Loving the inspiration.

    bless you,

  29. This was so cute…and ideas do feel like pop corn popping in your mind!

  30. Debbie Says:

    You are just too much fun! I think when I was young, I used to live on popcorn. Maybe that’s what’s wrong with me? haha! Enjoy yours and I enjoy you! You always keep things popping around here!

    • bendedspoon Says:

      Thanks Deb!
      I don’t know how long my relationship with popcorn will go. I’m like that with food — I crave, crave and crave then I no longer want it. I am sure it will come to an end so I appreciate the pop pop pop while at it!

  31. maggsworld Says:

    I am not a popcorn person ( for consumption that is) but I do feel like popcorn in myself. I do.

  32. jmjbookblog Says:

    Oh, I know I should say plain…but I LOVE salted and buttered! Pop Pop Pop πŸ™‚
