I am the Red Poppy. I’ve been born and raised in the absence of other flowers for my mission is “Remembrance”. I’m here to remind you of your dead Heroes, you Ancestors, of what ones was yours but you cannot touch anymore, loses we all equally share. Now that I appeared to you, embrace me with pride and grace for the souls you’re looking are all here, dancing with me through their red petals. They breathe between me and you. But I have to warn you my dears that the only way to speak to them is by listening to your heart. Something you will never be able to escape from. Listen to what it has to say, it is the silent voice of all you once loved and missed. Never forget what brought you here before I disappear and you will always have the same thought of a harrowing reaction, to remember!
Meaning behind the concept of the use of Poppy: Wild poppy is known as a woman, its essence is feminine. Careful observer of nature, the woman expert of plants exercised an art based on knowledge and empirical uses, consolidated through tradition and experience, to which the magical and ritual aspect was often not extraneous. This reference to women could also be connected to the symbolism of fertility and the cycle of death / regeneration because the mystery of vegetation “requires the death of the seed to guarantee the seed itself a new birth”.
