One Tiny Bud


Harboring a little
beacon of hope
on a window ledge.
Without advanced notice,
a tiny impatiens
bud unfurled.
in a house plant’s
warm soil,
it chose today
to bloom.
As though called
to soothe the 
irritation of 
the arrival of
a blizzard
on the threshold
of Spring.   
A promise
of better days
to come.

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.
