So much
more than
a snapshot
of a pier.
Conjurer of
captured memories
of a day
in February
far from
New England’s
icy breath.

Of sunshine
and warm sand.
Of barefoot
wandering
at water’s edge.
Of seashells.
Of comfortable
easy friendship
of old friends.
Of pelicans
diving for fish.
Of seabirds
so accustomed
to people 
they preened
and posed
for pictures.

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.
