Flash 55 - Can you relate?

I had it a moment ago
It was solidly there
In a flash it’s gone missing
To who knows where.

It was really important
Needed dealing with quick
It’ll have to wait till later
It just didn’t stick.

‘Till it shows up again
I’ll do otherthings instead
It’s out there somewhere
That thought in my head.


  1. OMG! I can so relate and this made me literally laugh out loud. Very clever and fun!

  2. This is so --

    oh, wait -- what was I going to say? I had it there a minute ago.

    Give me a second.

    Damn, I forgot what I was going to say...

    Oh, yeah -- I don't get your poem. ;)

    Very clever, and unfortunately oh so true!

  3. Bwaa Ha Ha - yep!! Here one one minute, gone the next!

  4. Can I relate? I can totally comprehend from personal experience the scenario you described. Those thoughts must go somewhere! Someday, I suspect that I'll open a drawer and all my lost thoughts will come floating out like helium balloons. The sad thing is that I probably won't recognize them by then! I'll just open the door and let them go.

  5. I had a bad memory day on Thursday, thus the prompt for Friday. I love your helium balloon vision - my sky will be filled with them!

  6. Great Flash! Funny, and so true. I can't remember what else I was going to say.

  7. So now we're all doing it! Oh well, you just have to laugh about it. Won't do any good to get upset..

  8. Very charming and clever! Like the others, I totally relate. You hit the nail on the head.

  9. This is terrific and adorable! I just love your sweet poems...they're so great!

  10. Somehow the ideas just come to me and seem to work with rhyming, so there ya' go!
