Season of Light


Tiny tree suspended
on a deck rail.
Festoon with lights
that defy the darkness.
Gather round all birds
and squirrels and chipmunks.
Feast on the acorns
and seeds and crusts of bread
scattered beneath the tree.
All creatures, big and small,
should benefit from
this season of light.


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.
