〜Day for chrysanthemums  新暦ではありますが〜

Although it is according to the new calendar, today marks the Double Ninth Festival, a day to celebrate the chrysanthemums I wrote a modern haiku on the flower.

The famous haiku poet, Takahama Kyoshi seems to be feeling kind of uneasy about the lacking petals.

Under the clear fall sky/

Noticed the lacking part of the petals/

Of a wild mum/

Written by Takahama Kyoshi
