Gold flower

Unfurling globe
Of glowing petals
Bringing sunlight
To darkening days.

Golden flower of November –
Chrysanthemum.

A lovely birthday bouquet delivery from my son included the November flowers – chrysanthemum. Literally “gold flower” from Greek khrysos = gold and anthemon = a flower. Thank you, Ben.
