woke up

this morning

all present and

all accounted for.

as the minutes ticktocked by,

one by one they slowly fell –

rolling away…far from my grip.

by nightfall, my basket was empty.

it seems i have lost all of my marbles!

    I do believe mine are gone as well, I’ve misplaced the critical one so therefore they all fall down! 🙂 LOL This is great Kimberly

    You are better off than I am, I start the day with my basket empty…I lost my marbles a long time ago. 🙂

      I doubt that – I think you have some tucked away somewhere:)

    Mine have been gone long enough that have started a book club with others they met along the way.

      How cool;). We should start a walking club – the looking for marbles walking club!

    What’s a marble? 😉

    • 12. words4jp  |  April 21, 2014 at 6:37 pm

      Good question. I wrote this when i had a few left but since then I lost the rest, so now I am not too sure;)

    I found a bunch of yours under my bed gathering dust bunnies! They must have had quite the adventure getting all the way down here! lol

    Marbles are over-rated! 🙂

    • 15. words4jp  |  April 23, 2014 at 12:48 am

      You actually inspired me to write this when you mentioned marbles a few days back;)

      • 16. Blog It Or Lose It  |  April 23, 2014 at 12:53 am

        Hooray! 🙂

        Marbles, shmarbles, right?

  • 17. Wordifull Melanie  |  April 23, 2014 at 12:11 pm

    Well it isn’t our fault…marbles are adventerous creatures by nature. They like to go out exploring and unfortunately they have that mostly male gene of not asking for directions…and they never carry maps. Sooo they get lost. Except for the green ones….they usually find their way home. 🙂

    • 18. words4jp  |  April 23, 2014 at 1:29 pm

      yes, i can certainly see your point:) they are too roly poly and, i agree about the map thing. most definitely.

    My marbles are somewhere with my patience and my energy and my money. Hmm, time is a thief.
