As I dried my sleeves,
drenched with chrysanthemum dew,
did an age slip by?

Jeronimus, after the ancient Japanese poet Sosei Hoshi

I enjoy this haiku for the last line punch - each word and line creates a unique experience. Well done!

Hi Bhalachandra. I reworked an ancient Japanese poem of 5 lines, condensing it into 3 to make a Haiku.
I've been enjoying your poems too.
