Blue Curtains


Fantasy and reality
often clash.
Not in the case
of my blue curtains.
On moving
to the Cape,

I  had envisioned
windows hung
with blue curtains

light enough to
billow in the wind.
Primed to capture 
the cape breeze
so redolent of
sea and flowers 
and propel it
into the house.
My fantasy is now
my daily reality.



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.
