Morning After


Quiet here this morning.
Chairs from the party
still askew on the deck.
In a world accessed 
by bridges, prudent
to celebrate Memorial Day
on Sunday to avoid
the snake like chain
of cars that will be
exiting tonight.  Sun
filtering through green leaves.
Three days of sunshine
on a Memorial Day weekend.
Chamber of Commerce dream
in our seasonal community.  
The summer we thought
would never come
is finally here. Calendar
filling with events.
Capturing moments in
a span of time that
seems endless at the outset,
but experience has taught us
goes by in a blink.


About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
