Transcript of Flower Archetype

By: Sierra Kross and Nilofar Abdul Shukur Flowers Transience of human life
Love Meanings: Flora (Chloris) upset that the Romans were neglecting her worship: "I failed to guard the fields, and I neglected my fruitful garden. Lilies had fallen, you could see violets parched and tendrils droop on the crimson saffron. Zephyrus often said to me: `Do not ruin your dowry.’ My dowry was now worthless." Greek Mythology Flower Example: -Transience of human life "The cloudy gray circle identified the place where the bowl filled every day during the doctor's life with fresh flowers had stood. Every day" (12).

From a Turkish legend, the red tulip got its meaning from a Prince named Farhad who fell in love with the maiden, Shirin. When he heard the news of his lover's death, Farhad rode his horse off a cliff... and it is said that with every drop of his blood, a red tulip sprang up to show his, "perfect love" for the maiden.

Works Cited "She made little holes and tucked something that looked like a small onion in them. As he stood there, mindlessly watching her, tulips began to grow out of the holes she had dug. First a solitary thin tube of green, then two leaves opened up from the stem- one on each side. He rubbed his eyes and looked again. Now several stalks were coming out of the ground behind her. Either they were bulbs she had already planted or they had been in the sack so long they had germinated. The tubes were getting taller and taller and soon there were so many of them they were pressing up against each other and up against his mother's dress. And still she didn't notice them or turn around. She just kept digging. Some of the stems began to sprout heads, bloody red heads that bobbed over and touched her back. Finally she noticed them, growing and nodding and touching her. Milkman thought she would jump up in fear-at least surprise. But she didn't. She leaned back from the, even hit out at them, but playfully, mischievously. The flowers grew and grew, until he could see only her shoulders above them and her flailing arms high above those bobbing snapping heads. They were smothering her, taking away her breath with their soft jagged lips. And she merely smiled and fought them off as thought they were harmless butterflies" (104-5).
