    A dusty dusky scent, were it not for yellow

  7. You have intwined a modern kigo ‘dusk’ with a classic one ‘Chrysanthemum’ … awesome post Mark.

  8. Very seasonal. I understand that’s important in proper haiku. And yellow— lots of yellow. I liked it.

    I have always enjoyed mums. One of my favorites being the spider chrysanthemum.
    Had mums in my bridal bouquet (for an almost autumn wedding) almost 35 years ago 🙂
