Christmas Eve


Rain splashed windows 
greet this day of Christmas Eve.
Seems a fitting backdrop 
for the spring-like flower buds 
on the kitchen sills. 
Even Santa must be 
thankful for this day 
without the snow and ice 
that impede travel. 
Not feeling nostalgic 
for snowy years past. 
Grateful and happy for 
the gift of today.


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.
