Reversed tulips ..

Reversed tulips ..

According to a report prepared by an initiative of
Solidarity with Arrested Students,
An indictment prepared on Students says that,
“A Reversed tulip photo was captured in the arrested student’s home (!) ..
Reversed tulips, are grown only in the south-eastern region (!) ..
There are photos of woman terrorists with reverse tulips (!)..
Therefore, the photo of a reversed tulip
May be an indication of an organizational link (!)… “blah blah blah ..
On the land chosen for the construction of Selimiye Mosque
There was a tulip garden..
The landlady didn’t want to sell the land..
Upon their insistence, while the mosque was being built
The lady decided to sell on the condition that there would be a tulip motif..
Mimar Sinan kept his promise
Muezzin had the tulip motif being done under the gallery as a reversed tulip..
By doing that he both explained
That it was built on a tulip garden,
And how much reverse and shrewish the landlady was…
Would you like to learn the relevancy of the reversed tulip with our subject here?
If the prosecutor had lived in the period of Mimar Sinan
Who knows what would have happen to the Great Sinan,
Because of the reversed tulip and its organisational (!) connection..
Did you say ‘this would never ever become a question in Ottoman’s’?
You’re so right, it had never been a question and never ever would be….
Homeland of reversed tulips is Anatolia..
Its geography extends
From Anatolia to Afghanistan, Pakistan and
To the foothills of Himalaya..
It started its journey from Istanbul
to the Europe by the Ambassador Busbec
During the Ottoman Empire..
It became subject to the legends, tales in each region,
Inspired the artists, ornamented canvases, places ..
It became immortal on Van Gogh’s canvas with its red colour,
It became a balm for the wounds of the pain of lovers’ hearts..
Like a modest bride bending her head,
It is also called as the elegiac beauty,
Because of its bended head, elegiac mood..
They are not wayward despite they look modest..
They bloom by themselves if they like the solid..
It lasts for a month once a year..
Because of its tears/essence coming down in the mornings
That no one can see
It is also called as
Mourning bride..
For this reason it became subjects of tales..
It mourned sometimes for Hazrat Hasan and Hüseyin,
and sometimes for Ferhat..
Because he couldn’t come together with his Şirin..
When Âşık Veysel becomes the subject..
It expostulated elegising on Almighty Creator:
“A Tulip begs; Oh God, why I have a wry neck,
I’m separated from my beloved one, is there a flower better (!) than me?

I have a clear notice to the here at this point,
To the Prosecutor who prepared the indictment:
Reversed tulips, disappeared this year, but have patience,
All reversed tulips in all over the world,
Are organized to meet in late April, early May of next year
In the village of Hayrettin -Denizli
For a visual action / feast ..
All preparations shall be done within a period of a limited time
For capturing the reversed tulips that are evidences of a crime
Just for not to lose any evidence of a crime..
In case of the majority of those who
Participate the visual action / feast from far or near
With the inhabitants of the village of Hayrettin
Meanwhile we need to remind that
Measures need to be taken..
Those who are going to raid
The reversed tulips that are going to make an action in Hayrettin Village
Might lose their salaries,
As a compensation for reversed tulips..

Those were the days!
Reversed tulips that used to inspire artists, lovers
be the subjects of legends, fairy tales
You became the evidence of an indictment, crime
That’s what kills the valiant prosecutors..!
That’s what lowers the head of the tulips..!
That’s what lowers the head of the man..!
