Trying To Be Positive

The sky is blue. The sun is out.
Drifts block the doors.
Start again.
The sky is blue. The sun is out,
It’s -1 outside.
Start again.
The sky is blue. The sun is out.
More snow predicted for tomorrow.
Start again.
The sky is blue. The sun is out.
Unrelenting gusts of wind.
Start again.
The sky is blue. The sun is out.
Finally, a cause for a smile.
Contented Sam in a crumpled heap.
Sleeping in a patch of sun.

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.
