instead of haiku

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

    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...
