Magenta Chrysanthemums After Rain

















Once more, once more
into magenta petals of the
chrysanthemum, I dive.

Where is this river that becomes
a mirror, my sea, the flow amidst,
purple flowers drunk with love,

awakening soul?






Princess Haiku expresses deepest appreciation to the flower that awakens beauty and true nature.

HAIKU!! I've missed you Haiku, it's soooo great to have you back. :D I responded back to your comment btw.

Absolutely gorgeous photos! :) My favorite photo here is the second to last. The three Magentas together are amazing and I love the words you used to fulfill and express your mood.

Take care Haiku and I'm so happy to read and see you're back. :D

Hi Jackie, Mavin and Lotus; glad that you like the flowers. I have been following the Way of the Chrysanthemum for about five years and this year the flowers are most potent.

Hi Princess Haiku :)

Your photos are beautiful and so is your soul.

My favorite one of these is the last, since to me they seem just so happy to be able to stretch themselves up towards the sky.
