Pipeline protesters (Sugar Shack Alliance) are arrested and pledge non-violent resistance to fossil fuel development; the Canada Warbler thanks them. A 420 character 9-liner

Shady forest undergrowth & thickets:

I love to poke around in such

but worry that forest clear-cutting for pipelines makes its denizens vulnerable

like that fancy Canada Warbler with its necklace of short stripes,

its yellow chest, throat & belly, striking white spectacles

that I spotted flushing insects from foliage

while foraging on twigs & leaves.

Lovely, but threatened by forest fragmentation,

not enough shady.

NOTE FROM PATTY: This week demonstrators were arrested at Otis State Forest as the Kinder Morgan Tennessee Gas Pipeline Company started cutting trees for their gas project. This will be a four-mile swath through state forest. I don’t think that we can sit by and watch during this time of climate crisis. Halting pipeline construction is part of the whole climate and environmental justice movement.
