Outer Banks

Outer Banks
of North Carolina
in November.
Miles of beach
populated by seabirds alone.
Barefoot wandering
in still warm water.
Shore fishing
for dinners of
shockingly fresh fish.
Delight in securing
sustenance from 
waters outside
one’s door.
Gathering of shells
casually tossed
by rolling waves.
Sunrise and sunset
pure symphony
of dancing
sound and light.
Peaceful days
shared with friends.


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.
