Where do the lost things go?

#writeclub #lostitems

I’m sure there’s a spot in the house they go

these objects that move without life to and fro

Now wallets and keys – don’t have legs – so i’m told

so they must have wings – an idea i’ve been sold

Allen keys switching spots with their brother

moving from one place to another

Door keys moving from their usual place

Floating through air , dancing with grace

playing with the other stuff that does disappear

and then landing in a new spot with no fear

Piggybanks trotting away in the night

taking the pennies – that shine in moonlight

and re-appearing in the house – with complete glee

underneath a potplant or bonsai tree

but then they’ll trot off – on another little wonder

and you’ll be searching again where’ve they gone ? you will ponder…..

trotting back up the hallway stairs

and having conversations with some old teddy bears
