Carpe Diem #82, Withered Mums (karogiku)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Another day in Carpe Diem's Paradise. Today our prompt is 'Withered Mums (karogiku)'. Chrysanthemums are also a kigo for late winter. In our first month of Carpe Diem we also had Chrysanthemums for prompt, because Chrysanthemums are kigo for Autumn and Winter.

Have fun and enjoy your new Carpe Diem episode. Be inspired and creative and share your haiku with us.
