The Mountain Awaits


Sheer joy on the slopes.
Fledgling athlete feeling
the first flush of mastery
as his body responds
with a natural rhythm
making him one with his skis.
Bunny slope conquered.
On to the chair lift.
The mountain awaits
his enthusiastic arrival.


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.
