Memory’s Mosaic

It is past

 

The fragment of dress material

stitched into a quilt

 

The yellowed photograph

of father and child

 

The clink of cups and saucers

Morning kitchen routine

 

Smell of babies’ hair,

snaps of their all-in-one suits

 

The bonhomie

around the family meal table

 

The scraps of dialogue,

scripts from childhood

 

Preference for Earl Grey tea

as chat was stirred in

 

The touch of chenille

on matching sisters’ bedspreads

 

The snap of lucerne tree pods

in summer heat’s stillness

 

Chips in neuron mosaic
