“Chrysanthemum”, a Tanka for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai….

Image result for chrysanthemums


Over at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, the prompt #20 was “Chrysanthemum”.  This is a flower of Autumn, but also a kigo word for Winter.

My submission:

The Chrysanthemum-

Explosion in different hues

Cushion for the bees.

Perfume the Autumn garden

Desired by the chickens.

    It’s a long novel, 8 years in the writing….I would like to publish it before I die.
