Monday Party


Sun on the rise
smiling at the thought
of our Monday party.
Seems delighted by
our freedom to avoid
the constraints of
a workweek versus
weekend mindset.
Cars on the bridge
celebrate Mondays
as they zip along
free of the weekend snarl.
Retirement has given
Monday a new persona.  
People who once shared
conferences and business trips
free to celebrate the bonds
that remain strong long
after the ties that bound
them together have eased. 
Reveling in friendship
and  flexibility.


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.
