Not For Everyone


Funny thing about raw oysters.
For some, aversion.
A queasy sense of unease
as they dwell on the thought
that these briny creatures
pulsed with life
only moments before
their shells were severed apart.
For others, a flash of pure delight
as they eagerly reach
for this primal connection
with the sea.


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.
