Shared Tree


Sam and I have a new morning spot. A December spot.
We share the tree and the peace of early morning.
Sam doesn’t question the wonder of a tree that appears inside.
Nor does he bat at the ornaments as his younger self had done.  
He just accepts these things and burrows 
under the branches to settle in for a nap.
I sit in a chair, coffee in hand,
capturing a bit of the wonder
of the season reflected in the lights. 



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.
