It is a beautiful haiku.
I wish I knew what poui blossoms are like, but even if I don't know, I can associate the falling blossoms with your loss.

flower petals fall in a great honoring and like your thoughtful haiku bow to the gift of life,
and the humble moment of passing.

A flag at half-staff marks a sombre occasion. May it also invite introspection.
