A reason not to prune.

My gone-amok hedgerows of low, thick shrubs; small trees;

those interior branches of cozy conifer tangled with bittersweet?

Hideaways for winter songbirds.

Finches, cardinals, jays, and juncos fly to what’s become an oasis

twixt the neighbor’s vacuumed lawns & our raised beds–

seed heads galore, but no protection.

Chittering mixed flocks dart in at dusk & share the space.

A reason not to prune.

PATTY

WHILE THIS HEDGEROW BEGINS WITH A LOVELY STONE FENCE AND IT ISN’T WINTER, THIS IS THE SOUND I’M HEARING FROM MY HEDGEROW. (The youTube works for yoga too!)
