A month of March has always made people’s hearts skip a beat with hopes for warmth and pleasant sunlight. However, this month is not what we expected. Cold wind still pierces our skin, and we wear thick jackets and knitted scarves like armors against it. New coats in baby pink or sky blue have to wait a little more to see the light. The only sign of spring we can find is advertisements of strawberry products.
To me, spring is a break between two harsh seasons - cold winter and hot summer. I cannot help but feel that the break is getting shorter because spring does not last long anymore. I remember how warm the weather was even in early March when I was younger; I would wear my pale pink jacket and go to school while enjoying fresh buds and blossoms on tree branches. The path to school was peppered with dandelions and violets. I used to pick azaleas and suck nectar from them. I may have felt like spring was longer in the past because I was a child then, but I believe it is because I am losing room for spring in me. I am losing leisure in myself to look around to really observe the changes spring is bringing around me. I may have been missing small flowers and green sprouts on the ground because I failed to notice them. Spring will come to those who look for it; we just need look. Then, spring will blossom in our minds like before.
