Marveling at missing marbles: A-Z verses from vintage visages

C’mon. everybody needs a friend like this.

Marveling at missing marbles

We’re missing our marbles and many dear things.
We can’t find our glasses, our keys, or our rings.
We pick up our cells, give each other a call
To ask where our phones might have happened to fall.

Despite all these trinkets we seem to misplace,
Our friendship is something lost minds can’t erase.
Sure, losing some stuff for a stretch is a pain,
But together we claim we still have half a brain.
c2016 by Linda Ann Nickerson

We're not quite there yet, but we will be, if we're so blessed.

This poem was posted for the April A to Z Blogging Challenge and National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), as well as these prompts:

Meme Express: “marking,” “maybe” and “marble”
Simply Snickers: "many” and “marvels”
