Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Autumn ... a season full of beauty in the broadest sense of the word. I love the colorful leaves, the bright full moon, but the most I love the Chrysanthemums with all the colors like a rainbow. There are a few haiku on Chrysanthemums I love to share here for your inspiration:
Drinking the morning green tea,
The monk is calm.
The flowers of chrysanthemum.
The ninth day is very soon.

all the funeral chrysanthemums we have,
in the coffin
All wonderful haiku by classical masters on Chrysanthemums. I love that image by the way it's really a rainbow of Chrysanthemums. And I think you all will know other beauties, but today I love to challenge you to create your own Chrysanthemums beauty ... have fun!

gazing at the Milky Way -
a whole new sensation
tickles my senses
