I had a tall photo of fruit and needed to fill the left side. While I was trying to smudge the photo with the background, I tried to add a chalkboard effect. It’s orange season, except where the last hurricane ruined the crop.

Yesterday’s rules
as taught you in schools
are still useful to know.
The garden’s great fruits
came up from deep roots
and continue to grow.
All ways you can see
the future to be
is part of life’s flow.
