A lighthouse

For sailors a lighthouse is more like a tower,
some taller than others but most of them white.
They have to see them in fog and rain shower
and in every storm which they have to fight.

The farther away the horizon is reaching
the higher the lighthouse must put up its sign
so that the specific signal is teaching
the sailor where he can follow its shine.

So when the lighthouse looks more like a boat
and less like a tower to throw a wide shine,
you conclude the horizon is far from remote,
which tells you the waterway proves to be fine.

Today lighthouses are almost redundant
as satellites make navigation a game.
But even though sea charts may be recumbent
lighthouses stand out and are not all the same.

Aus meinem Buch:

Picture always open my mind for an idea. So that is why I like writing a poem about this idea. I especially appreciate paintings by artists, which I was allowed to use. What characterizes my books is that you can start reading wherever with whichever picture catches your eyes. So the perfect present for people who like starting at the end or just surf through the pages.
