Lightcatcher

One spot of light can be enough
to detect a tiny flower.
Its life in the wilderness is tough
to resist stronger plants or shower.

Who catches the light has already won:
the plants can prosper and grow,
whereas those that permanently shun
the limelight eventually slow.

The light of public attention, however,
is a danger all of its own.
To avoid it seems to be awfully clever,
you’re freer when you are unknown.

Aus meinem Buch:

Life represents us with an astonishing variety of beauty. This is why when I see a photo or a picture, it might inspire me to put my thoughts in a rhyme. Picture and rhyme belong together this way. – When the reading becomes too difficult, try a second time, or a third, and you’ll understand what I want to say, I hope.
