Ornamental August

Nature provides
decorative touches.
No artifice needed.
Rising from
a tangle of foliage,
yellow flowers
tilt their faces
to mirror the sun.
Tucked in clusters
amid sheltering leaves,
grape tomatoes,
each answering
an individual call,
slowly ripen,
one by one,
to a glowing
ruby red.


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.
