Window on the World



Sam spends hours
surveying a rich world
just out of reach.
A busy place of foraging squirrels
skidding on patches of ice.
Of Bluejays and Woodpeckers
jockeying for space
at the bird feeder.
Of sunlight rainbows
glinting on slushy surfaces.
Safe and warm,
content to be an observer,
he stands watch.


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.
