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.
