The play on "snowdrops" gives these harbingers of spring greater depth.

Beautifully crafted, beautiful haiku.

Snowdrops have a special place in our conciousness as you have illustrated so well!

Nice sets Paul...the butterfly and snowdrops -- :)

some how both reminded me of Gandhiji's quote -- "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever"

wishes,
