Excerpt from ‘From Up on Poppy Hill’

Excerpt from 'From Up on Poppy Hill'

Hey guys, recently I rewatched the movie From Up on Poppy Hill (Or Kokuriko-zaka kara), which is from my beloved Ghibli studios and directed by Goro Miyazaki and I noticed this pretty poem in it that I wanted to share.

‘Fair girl, why do you send
Your thoughts to the sky?
The wind carries them aloft
To mingle with the crows.
Trimmed with blue
Your flags fly again today.’

A fan made picture with scenes accompanying the poem, it earned an instant squeal.

It’s quite a slow paced movie compared to the other Studio Ghibli films but I loved it all the same. There are some snapshots of my favourite scenes and the trailer below if you’re interested! 🙂



About everburningcinders

So so...where to start? Well, for starters, I can say that I'm one of those kinds of people that don't care about their hair, or desperately need another pair of shoes. In fact, if you see me, you wouldn't notice me at all. I'm just the shadow, sticking to the walls, head buried in a book or eyes glazed over in a daydream. I want to be listened to and I want to be appreciated. My moral in life: Life is life. Believe in it and suck it up. I look forward to meetin' ya all!
