In Vigilance Is No Orchard, Hazel White records her haunting romance with the Valentine Garden, created by landscape architect Isabelle Greene in the foothills of Santa Barbara, California. Jealous of its maker's power to affect a dynamic experience of space, White tries to make language play faithfully in the game coursing between the body and Greene's fiercely stirring landscape. Both the poems and the constructed landscape they describe are complex and explorative, never simplified. Instead their interests are survival, forage and repair, the act of making, accumulation and overflow that results in flowering and eventually gives way to loss. Praise for Hazel White: "I set this book down and wept...It is the most beautiful piece of writing I have read in many years."-Bhanu Kapil
