Morning Light


Too early
for robins.
Eight of them.
Clamoring for seed
on our front lawn.
But they came.
Too early
to lust for spring
on our little strip of land
jutting out
into the cold ocean.
Too early
to put away boots
in spite of the tease
of lighter jackets
and hatless heads
and gloveless hands.
But soon enough
to appreciate
morning light
that arrives
earlier each day
and warms
bare branches
with the promise
of renewal.

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.
