Stinging nettle

Survival modus is what brings
advantages to all that stings.
Maybe this is the reason why
touching the plant you wouldn’t try.

So it can flourish without fight,
but still it always needs some light
and nitrogen the more the better,
the lack of which does clearly fetter.

Given these two basic chances
the nettle on and on advances,
which lets the gardener despair
because his plants don’t find this fair.

Perennials are meant to bloom
and therefore need their private room.
Should such a minor plant intrude
elitist ones might become rude.

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.
