Growing strong

When grounds are covered thick with moss
you know they mostly lie in shadows.
They suffer from ongoing loss
of light – unlike the brighter meadows.

So you would probably expect
that nothing else is growing there.
Surprisingly you can detect
that some plants simply do not care.

These plants are strong, defy all troubles.
Coming out they proudly claim
that in spite of moss or rubbles
they can always reach their aim.

Needless to compare their power
to what people can achieve
when they do not shy or cower,
though aware of what they leave.

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.
