Good alliteration and assonance. I try to work those into my own haiku. Toothsome words paint lovely imagery.

This works well "wandering caterpillar". You create a rhythm with these 3 and four syllable words. I like the aimless association with "wandering".

The personification of "admires" is a light, amusing touch.

And then you round off the whole thing with "chrysanthemums" brings the whole haiku to a fitting end like a phonetic firework display.

Great fun.
