"fences, we know,

cut through and separate places and people;

they stop movement, repel, prevent, hide.

these fences strive to blend in and move with the flow of the valley;

to connect and make bridges

between here and there,

between left and right,

between above and below;

to facilitate and encourage movement;

to invite us to walk and penetrate them

by walking,

by looking,

by listening to their gentle conversation

with each other

and the valley;

and so they may,

rather than hide,

reveal and make visible

the murmur of the valley."
