My daughter took this selfie some time ago. At first sight I was worried.
Later, I remembered when I too was a teenager.
Loved the beauty of this piece of horticulture, made more warming by the backdrop and the knowledge of where I had just come from and where I was going.

Alone in the garden
A solitary observance
As I walk along the canal
As I live and I breathe
All around me
Are moving on.
A clean shot at the future.
