Subtle Signs of Change

Local corn piled high on roadside stands.
Tomatoes so lush they weigh down their stalks.
Basil begging to be gathered to form a perfect triumvirate.
Humidity still rules, coaxing us to spend our days
in the shade of a tree or at water’s edge.
But subtle signs of change lurk just below the surface.
Daylight ends a bit earlier each day.
Acorns litter the deck. A not so subtle reminder
that barefoot days are numbered.
School bells ring out with a beckoning call to arms.
Nature just beginning to prod us from our summer slumber.


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.
