And seasons resume their natural trends: Not aware of this Corona pandemics?

Note: I re-edited this article and tried to add poetry to Google translation from French

It was March 2020

The streets were empty, stores closed, people couldn’t go out anymore.

And then Spring flashed its colors, spread its scent: Spring didn’t know why this awful unusual aloofness of people with nature.

And the flowers bloomed prematurely, the sun was shining, the birds were singing, swallows were coming sooner, the sky was blue, and another glorious morning took us by surprise.

It was March 2020…
Young people had to study online, and find jobs from home, people couldn’t shop anymore, or go to the hairdresser. Soon there would be no room in hospitals, and people continued to get sick.

The garden needed urgent upkeep, the grass was re-surfacing its head, and still Spring was memoryless of what’s going on

It was March 2020…
People have been on lockdown, to protect grandparents, families and children. No more reunion or meal, family party. Fear has become real and the days looked alike.

But spring didn’t know, apple trees, cherry blossomed and the leaves grew green and larger

People started reading, playing with family, learning a new language (hopefully the language of cheerful living), singing on the balcony by inviting neighbors to join in, share the supportive community, and focused on other values than indefinite growth in production and financial “services”.

Then, it might have dawned on people the importance of health, the suffering of the isolated patients, of this crowded world that had stopped, of economical “perpetual growth” on halt.

But spring didn’t know. the flowers transformed into fruits, the bees enjoyed the abundance, the birds made their nest, swallows had arrived.

Then people found out on TV that this contagious virus had lost this round in the battle for a while, people hurried down to the streets, singing, crying, kissing their neighbors, without masks or gloves.

And that’s when summer took the spring by surprise: Both seasons didn’t know in what a mess humankind has been going through.

The next season started despite everything, despite the virus, fear and death. Because spring and all the seasons taught people the power of life.

Everything will be alright, stay home, protect yourself, and take another shot to enjoying life, a quality in living.
