: The Poppy Revolution : #NO GLOBAL
Here the indexbook >>> Why a poppy?
I love poppies
and this is why this flower is so important to me…
: episode n.5: #NOGLOBAL
The poppy is a wildflower
You can’t find it in a flower shop, and I hope you never will
. You can’t buy it .
it hasn’t been polluted by society, commercialised by mass production.
. Lobotomised .
The poppy is still an authentic and simple flower
that lives in the countryside on its own
It blooms from spring into early summer
you can’t have it whenever you want, you can only wait for it to blossom
you can observe it, admire it
and be delighted by its bright colour, which lights up smiles
. you can’t pick it up .
you can’t put it in a vase like you do with roses or with any other flower
YOU JUST CAN’T!
the stem – so stable and proud – would immediately wither
and fall apart, together with its bright petals
you can’t pick up beauty
you can’t pick up happiness
you can just stop to observe it or taste it
you can’t buy all those feelings like you buy flowers at the florist’s
and, likewise, you can’t buy a poppy
The poppy is not for sale
you can’t buy it with a MasterCard, like everything else
Poppies grow in the fields very quickly, they become a huge red carpet trying to twist the décor of the world. They make you want to lie down and look at the sky and wonder what shapes of clouds is planning to pass by your piece of sky.
(“if only we had time” – that’s what we say in these cases…
but who knows what time is, after all?
perhaps if we tried to understand it, we could find the answer and then we could also find
the time to be happy, couldn’t we?)

So far I found 14 different meanings hidden inside a poppy’s red petals; are you interested in some of them in particular?
