Have you seen my brain?
I lost it in the rain
possibly on the train
but it could be
with the lonely sock
all colored with chalk
Maybe in the dog house
with the frantic mouse
Oh, where could it be?
This is so silly
Do you have a hint
and should we sprint
to beat the clock
or can we walk?
I think I’ll shout
without a doubt
as loud as I can
so people can hear
and help me plan
just what to do
to find my brain
I need a clue!

Aww..thanks, Chris, and Mrs. Seuss? Don’t I wish! Yes, probably everyone can relate! Thanks again and I’m happy to make you smile! By the way, I’m still searching…lol
I suppose everyone has had this kind of day! Nice job 🙂
I agree and thank you so much, Angel, for your kind comment! 🙂
My pleasure 🙂
Oh, my goodness this is SO ME!!! Love it Lauren! ❤
We’re in it together then, Charlene, and you made me laugh! Thank you so much! ♥
first line had me laughing right away – oh, I know that feeling all too well!
Happy to make you laugh, Sarah, and I think many will share this feeling! 🙂
OH yes~ I can relate too. Love it Lauren. Have a wonderful day. ♥
Thanks very much, Anonymous! Have a wonderful day or evening! 🙂
Hmm … my mom just asked me to put something on the shopping list, and not minutes later I couldn’t remember what she said! LOL Love this – the truth and fun in poetry! XO ♥
Oh, how many times as that happened to me? Many! Thanks so much, Diane! xoxo
Yes, I have indeed had a day like that! I loved the playfulness underpinned by panic in this poem. 🙂
Thanks so much, Safia, for your insightful comment! If only we could have less days like this, right? 🙂
brilliant poem , Lauren, and such a delightful read 🙂 and yes I could relate very well.!

Thanks, Francina, it’s so nice to know I’m not alone in this absentmindedness! Love and hugs to you, too! xoxo
That’s a common thing to lose! 😉
Yes it is! Hopefully, I’ll find it very soon, too! 😉
Let me know how it goes 😉
Every day for me is like this!
Well, you’re not alone, Joe, and that should be reassuring! 😉
What, you want your brain? I hear they only get in the way of ignorant bliss. 😉
Too funny, Katherine, and I’m still looking, but not having any luck! 😉 xoxo
Cute Lauren. Now promise me when you find yours you’ll help me find mine. 🙂
Thanks, Kim, and I will promise to help you, but it looks like mine is taking an awfully long time to find! 😉
I’m reading the comments. Now we are all brilliant people. Why oh why are we losing our brain. An expert told me it is because as we get older we have soo much in our brain. Now that is reassuring!! Virginia
Yes, of course, we’re all brilliant; there is no other way to be and your expert’s words are very reassuring, Virginia. I will keep that in mind as I continue my search! 🙂
Brought out a chuckle – fun read 🙂
Thanks, Eric, it was fun to write and hopefully my search will end happily very soon! 😉
once again a beautiful piece of writing lauren!!!
Thanks so much, Kruti! Have a wonderful day and I hope the rains break soon for you, too!
Its still on 😦 3 days it has been
This is such a fun one and I can definitely relate! Brains are probably overrated anyway. I love the feeling of laughing at yourself in this. As long as we keep laughing at ourselves, we’ll be entertained anyway.
Thanks, Sheila, and you are so right…just keep laughing at ourselves! Brains are probably overrated, too; I agree! 😉
I enjoyed reading this. It made me smile and of course I can also relate 🙂
I’m so glad you enjoyed this and that it made you smile and I’m so sorry for missing your comment. 😦 I hope you are well, though, and keep smiling! 🙂
It’s okay Lauren 🙂
I am doing good, thanks!
Have a great day!
Most days look like this for me!
Well, I’m not sure if that’s good or not good, but at least you fit in with most of us! 😉 Thanks so much, Pooky, for stopping by!
ha ha! I’m pretty sure it’s not good but it does mean that life is never dull 😉
Felt like this last week… I was LOST!
Welcome to the club, Cha! Hope you found yours, though, I’m still looking! 😉
Love it – I have daze like that!! 😀
Thanks, Betty, you’ve now joined the club! 🙂
Loved this light-hearted poem, I have many a day when I have lost my brain! 😉
Thanks, Sue, many could relate to this one and It’s good to know we’re all the same! 🙂
