Incremental Summer


Spring is a slow crawl on our shores,
more tease than actual season.
Baby steps instead of strides
as we tip-toe our way to summer.
An umbrella rises over an outdoor table.
Flowers cascade from planters.
Basil thrives in newly balmy air.
Open windows perfume the house
with the scent of lilac and salt air.
Small bites to savor each day
as we anticipate the feast of summer.


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.
