The Beach Hat


The rumble
of the furnace
broke the stillness
of the morning.
Afternoon warmth
no longer enough
to last through
the night.
Time to move
the beach hat
to its winter shelf.
Freeing the peg
for attire more
appropriate for
the season.


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.
