Kiku, Kiku

I saw this white chrysanthemum from the New York Botanical Garden posted on flickR.



When it's all too much this ephemeral creature speaks to me, said Princess Haiku, of ancient legends, poetic beauty.... meditation...

Wrapping the chrysanthemum cloak around her like a shimmering moonlight of possibility, Princess Haiku vanished.

Doesn't she always?

It reallyy looks like a lot is goin gon with this flower, each petal looks busy, active--and yet it is so calming to look at. I think it is just gorgeous. the center, the very outer tips--so much good calm energy radiates.
