Transition Time


The door is closed now.
Summer’s center left
to wind swept leaves
and a litter of acorns.
Transition time.
Not yet buttoned
up for winter.
Outdoor furniture,
abandoned but
still in place.
Fireplace illuminated
by candles instead of logs.
A sweater enough 
to counter the chilly air.
Focus turned inward.
Cinnamon candles.
Pumpkins. Mums.
Roast chicken and apple pie.
Quiet time between the
busy summer season and
the holiday frenzy.

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.
