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
