Now or never

Seldom is the sea so calm
that you could as well just wait
in the next port without harm.
Caution never is too late.

Because sailors know it best:
suddenly the sea can fight
that no chance remains to rest
or sleep through a quiet night.

Consequently a decision
what a captain orders done
might evoke the crew’s derision,
but storm stress is never fun.

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.
