Toddler Opportunity

Scrub, scrape glides the sponge.
Squeak, swish, bubbling soap across the counter...
Elbow grease increases production -
Determination growing more intense...

Small steps in the distance,
Coming closer... louder...
Thump. Thump. Pitter. Patter.
Still, the scrubbing continues.
Thump. Pitter. Thump. Patter.
Washing intently - making things clean.

An opportunity is noticed.
The moment of chance taken.
Tear - crinkle - crunch -
Silence over takes the room.
Sponge is dropped in its place.

To none avail - she turns.
Looks. Little feet running in the distance.
Crinkled paper upon the floor...
The cabinet has been opened -

For while she turned,
Counter getting a wipe..
The toddler has been successful -
The dark chocolate has been swiped!
