Poppies

Poppies

In the new script Dawn wrote for Deathbed, Mabel replaces some dead flowers with some fresh flowers. I thought that it be interesting to experiment with the fresh flowers both color and strand wise.
There are two ways to look at poppies due to their haunting beauty. The first way, not the one we’re going with, is that they’re a beautiful species of flowers, often adored by the ancient Egyptians and associated with magic, fertility and even eternal life. Also, the Egyptians included poppies at funerals and in burial tombs. The Greeks used poppies in the shrines of Demeter, goddess of fertility, and Diana, goddess of the hunt. Poppies denote sleep, rest and repose. The second way, the way we’re more concerned with, is that they symbolize death. They might be a pretty flower, surely, but they’re also creepy for anyone who knows anything about poppies. They were the flowers used in funerals and placed in burial tombs and on shrines. Sending someone poppies means that you’re really hoping that they’re not long for this earth.
Now because i realize that it might be difficult to find poppies my second idea, which is a bit more banal is black roses. The reason black roses are so ominous in nature is because they actually don’t exist! Black roses are genetically engineered and symbolize everything from anarchy to sickness and death.
