sna poems, series supplementum #30: nashotah park

nashotah park in waukesha county includes 444 acres, two lakes, oak-hickory woods, prairie, and marsh. there’s also a small oak savanna on grass lake.

we went for a ski around the whole area, more or less, as isolated snowflakes tumbled from the sky. other folks were out enjoying the snow, including some ice fishermen.

beautiful, rolling glacial land. flip-phone photos, three lunes (three lines, 5-3-5 syllables) for you.

sand, water, marsh muck
