The next flower joining the “Sorrow Flowers” series is our Sorrow Cyclamen.
The Cyclamen is known for a sorrowful meaning and as a poisonous flower is therefore related to Death itself. It symbolizes goodbyes, separation and resignation. It should be no surprise -since it’s listed on our Sorrow Flowers series- that despite the grim reputation, the Cyclamen also carries the meaning of sincere tenderness, lasting feelings and deep love.
Despite meaning that all good things come to an end, it sets the path of departure to bigger things. It’s up to looking towards the right direction.
As the series we’re working on and off called Sorrow Flowers explores, this illustration called “Sorrow Cypress” speaks for the Cypress Tree- in this case a branch soon to bloom.
With the established meaning of sorrow and sadness, these are popular trees in Cemeteries where they symbolize the mourning and the despair related to losing someone dear to our heart. Less known is how they are meant to ward evil spirits away and an eastern symbol for life and eternity.
The Cypress branch on its way to bloom, finds the path to bring light to the darkness.
