A Kitten At Heart


There’s still a kitten
hiding somewhere
inside that sixteen year old cat.
His Christmas present
– bluebird that shoots a laser dot –
entices leaps into the air
and batting practice normally seen
in a much younger creature.
And Sam is not alone.
I have to believe that 
given the right impetus, 
that core of playfulness
and wonder is in each of us. 
Irrespective of age, just waiting
for an opportunity to burst forth.


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.
