Chrysanthemum starburst

Looking like the explosion of an aerial firework, this chrysanthemum seems to have a warm heart and a cold exterior. Incidentally, today's quote reminds me of computer-generated poetry!

"Chrysanthemums from gilded argosy
Unload their gaudy senseless merchandise."
from Humanitad by Oscar Wilde (1854-1900), Irish playwright, writer and poet
