World Outside My Window


Swirling snow caught
in window screens.
A blur of white
shielding my view
of the storm raging outside.
The outline of swaying branches
and the howl of the wind
telling a tale I’m content to ignore
as I sit at my desk and sip my tea.
Grateful for the scent
of newly baked bread 
and the cocoon of comfort
and warmth that shelters us
from the elements outside our door.


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.
