Kitchen Magic


Handfuls of flour.
Sprinkle of salt.
Shower of yeast.
Liquid to combine
and bloom.

Hands to prod
and stretch.

Flow of energy
stimulating growth.

Time and air
and a bit of fairy dust

giving lift and rise.
Heat the final step.
Crackle of crust
encasing tender crumb.
So much from so little.


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.
