Summer Has A Feel


Summer is soft.
Morning air
heavy with dew. 
Velvety flower petals
in gardens, on bushes
and ornamental trees.
Warm sand and grass
beneath bare feet.
The caress of
a sea breeze.
Canopy of leaves
shading roads and
filtering the sun.
Harshness of a world
of ice and snow
a mere memory.
No longer hiding
under hats and
scarves and coats
and boots, we emerge
from hibernation and
can’t help but smile
with delight at
this welcoming world.

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.
