My response to Carpe Diem #1537 Decay

This month at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, we are challenged with classical and non-classical kigo (seasonwords) for autumn, haiku about autumn by classical haiku poets like Basho and Chiyo-Ni and many others.

Today our challenge is a modern kigo (season word) taken from Jane Reichhold’s Dictionary of Haiku:  decay, and we have been given a number of examples.
