sna poems #83: waterloo prairie

waterloo prairie is a couple parcels of land along stony brook, one with a fen and many seepages, the other with a larger wet prairie meadow. i visited the latter, moving thru a small wood with wet, boggy patches thru-out to get out into the open.

as was the theme of the day, sandhill crane calls rattled back and forth over the meadow’s expanse.

calling out

in the wet meadow

from prairie to edge

from edge to wood

wood to boggy patch
