On the Train


Riding on
the caboose
of the runaway train
of summer.
Hand raised
in a wave
of farewell
to warm surf
and blazing sunsets.
Train slows
to a chug
as we pass
a lone fisherman
on a quiet inlet.
Peaceful now
as we cruise
into Autumn.


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.
