No wind

Take the wind out of the sails
and everything goes still.
All motion pitifully fails
and somehow dulls your will.

A paralysing blanket sinks
on one’s mood as well,
and the troubled sailor thinks
he hates motorboat swell.

It makes the boat sway at its place
and shakes the helpless boom
Forfeit the chance to win the race
makes desperation loom.

The lack of wind stops your ambition,
but forces you to think
what could be done in this condition:
you enjoy life and drink.

Aus meinem Buch:

The theme of living with the sea can be found in pictures and the poems that were inspired by the pictures. The atmosphere in the pictures is wonderful and alone worth buying. My modest poetry is short and to the point. So you are not distracted from the pictures, but maybe start enjoying my crazy ideas.
