A block of salt

A grain of salt means truth contained
in rumours that conspired
which put an ugly spot that stained
what you so far admired.

The flame of doubt begins to gnaw
and chews the firm conviction,
and fame and glamour that you saw
becomes a fickle fiction.

Blown up the grain gains in dimension
for everyone clearly to see
whereby each blemish draws attention.
Not one of us lives spotlessly.


Aus meinem Buch:

The way how people treat nature and handle their lives presents a full range of cases to think about. So it’s no wonder that photos and pictures inspire me to express such thoughts in concise rhymes. The pandemic standstill seems to provoke even more deeply to enjoy the varieties of a life that is still brimming. This is the reason why this book, like all my others, expresses the current feeling of our contemporary life with its specific problems.
