instead of haiku

instead of haiku
my heart eclipses mind,
freeing syllables
to praise shoots poking through
the snowmelt -- so many !

    :D So, you said you wanted to know if I got published? Official! One of my contemporary sonnets will be published by the Fieldstone Review, an online journal based out of the University of Saskatchewan. My first published poem! I had sent out 10 submissions total, I wasn't expecting a yes until I reached 30 submissions. I'm not strutting. I'm in shock.. in the most wonderful way.

    For some reason, even though I've never seen them in person, snowdrops popping merrily came to mind as I read this. The last couple lines probably made it sound so jovial for me. It's so fascinating how 2 words such as "so many!" seem to inject such childlike joy. Am happy for you that the snow is finally melting there, & hoping for sunnier days ahead for you. Btw, how fitting you put in eclipse, with the recent solar eclipse- That was really something amazing, how I wish I witnessed that...
