nichols creek east cedars lies on a morainal slope and the adjacent lowlands. the north-facing slope has springs and seepages that feed nichols creek and many white cedars. such a distinctive wood for this part of wisconsin. we walked thru much of the rise to the south of the cedars.

a.

the smell of carrion in the air

as the temperature plummets down

the owl’s call on deep sustain

b.

the cedars

so still

on the seeps
