The Cocooning Season

November chill
making its presence felt
outside our doors.
Cold wind
coaxing dry leaves
into a choreographed dance. 
 Listless gray skies
casting dim light
over an increasingly
colorless landscape.
But inside
there is a cloak
of warmth and light.
A dog with crossed paws
sleeps soundly on the couch,
emitting an occasional
contented snore.
Fresh loaves of bread
perfume the air. 
The cocooning season
has arrived.

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.
