Mercurial March

A fickle month is March.
One year ago, ice flows
clogged the canal. 
Lawns and gardens
remained blanketed

by heavy snow.
But not this year.
Nature’s warm smile
and balmy breath
encourage crocuses 
to open their petals
in greeting as they
face
the morning sun.
Heralding promise
of the joyful arrival
of an early spring.

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.
