Remnants of Memories by Robin McNamara

Autumn came earlier 
With the premature end of August.

The death of memories, 
The remnants of a favourite  
Holiday moment,

Now confined to the past,
Before it’s time was there to recall

From an album of snapshots, 
Gathering dust.

Ponds of reflections rippled by a stone 
Of doubt.

Was it a happy memory? 
Perhaps it was just a brief appetency.

A distortion; like ripples
Playing tricks with a fading mind.
