The Poetry Within

Read a quote about the San Francisco earthquake that shook the city on April 18, 1906. The speaker was a policeman. His words sheer poetry.

” (The streets) began to dance and rear and roll in waves like a rough sea in a squall, (then) sank in places and vomited up car tracks and tunnels. These lifted themselves out of the pavement and bent and snapped.”

Just goes to show that there is poetry in each of us.

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.
