Brewing Storm


Solemn start
to the day.
Air, heavy
with moisture,
blanketing everything
in its reach with
droplets of dew.
Sun overwhelmed
by shadow.
Slate clouds
taking command.
Squirrels, sensing
the changing air,
skid across the deck
in their haste
to gather food.
Heeding the warning
that a storm
is brewing.


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.
