DETERMINATION: a poppy’s meaning
you stop in a rest area, it’s empty.
There are just dead weeds, cement, heat and smog
you can spot a shiny red poppy
which was brave in hope
and strong enough to break the asphalt
and despite its delicate and tender bud, the poppy was able to break everything:
layers and layers of tar and gravel
. just cracked .
from all that, a small poppy managed to blossom
now it’s as shiny as the sun
and it’s right there, lighting and giving some colour to the infinite greyness
maybe this can be a cool fairy tale for us all
we see ourselves so delicate and tender, but we don’t see that all this sweetness and love for life it’s exactly what can crack the cement and make room for a gash of shiny and red life, that can contrast all the stubbornness that surrounds us
with love, but always irriverent
