sna poems #82: chub lake oak savanna

chub lake oak savanna is a 21-acre plot south of chub lake. large oaks and shagbark hickory dominate the area, but the regeneration of trees here has made a thicker canopy, which has led to overgrowth in the understory. parts looked like densely grown forest.

but it was a nice, secluded place for a walk and to enjoy the muddy lakeshore. partway thru i spotted an inchworm on my vest, and he ended up on my rough papers, which was a treat. more cranes.


grassland lingering, languishing,

choked under too-tight canopy—

inchworm hitches a ride


wing and proleg

beak and sheaf

calix flanking
