Carpe Diem #306, Chooyoo (Chrysanthemum Festival)



Carpe Diem #306, Chooyoo (Chrysanthemum Festival)


Elixir of life
Chrysanthemum-let me taste
your fountain of youth


Palette of colours
Chrysanthemums bestowing
fragrance everywhere.


Dew drops shimmer,a
gift of immortality
on chrysanthemums


Chooyoo,your touch makes me
feel immortal,colouring
my garden of life


Let me take a sip
O Chrysanthemum,life flows
forever into your cup!


Petals adorn the
dish I savor,to live long
Hello Chrysanthemum
