#share your day (starting with turtles)

needs salt in my world–
butter adds
zest—is it
any wonder my favorite
snack food is popcorn?

It’s #ShareYourDay week at Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday. Today is stormy, full of wind and rain, and I’m hunkered down inside. So I made some popcorn and wrote a shadorma for the W3 prompt from Sylvia about one of my favorite foods.

So where do the turtles come in?

The Oracle is enigmatic, as always.

starting with turtles
dressed in thousands of skyclouds–
mountain water green

    I love air popped popcorn and have learned to love it without salt and butter per WW. It’s my lunch everyday!

    When I was little my grandfather popped the popcorn in a wire basket on a long handle over the fire in the fire place. And my grandmother shook butter salt all over it in our bowls. There’s no describing how good it tasted and what a treat it was. Popcorn is special for a lot of reasons.

    Great job on the shadorma, and I love your haiku as well ❤ (And I love popcorn, too, as long as it's not microwaved!) 🙂

    is popcorn uniquely salty among snack foods? when it comes to salt, I first think of pretzels! 🥨

    Love your turtle haiku and the illustration. I think popcorn might be the first point of divergence I’ve noticed between us. I tasted it once when I was very small and the memory still makes me shiver.

    Hehe! The popcorn was a staple snack every Sunday night as a kid – my dad would make it in the “popcorn pot” and we’d eat it watching the Wonderful World of Disney. Seems my husband’s family did the same thing! Your popcorn shadorma is wonderful and triggers lots of memories for everyone!!

    Our Friday evening ritual is popcorn while watching sci-fi. I wafer-slice garlic & crisp it in oil to make garlic chips that are tossed into the popcorn. Strange, I know.
