Haiku Carpe Diem Special #35, Kyoshi Takahama’s ‘dead chrysanthemum’

Today’s Carpe Diem Haiku prompts is Dead Chrysanthemum by Kyoshi Takahama.

a dead chrysanthemum
and yet – isn’t there still something
remaining in it?

No image today, just an emptiness…

the emptiness
your shadow left behind
fills my mind

Smiles, love and laughter
