Cape Cod Musings


Yes, it’s the sunset
weaving a burning path
over the water.
Yes, it’s the heavy scent
of sea and salt in the air.
But, most of all, it’s the wind.
The wind that bends
the scrub pine and sea grass
and rattles the shutters
and blows the curtains inward
that reminds us we are
but a solitary bit of sandy soil 
jutting out into the ocean.


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.
