White sails in the sunset

The sun has set, but still you see its shine
that yet with power lights the sky,
the far horizon now appears as a dark line
on which the sails do slightly tilted lie.

To sail into the sunset means “go west”,
whereby you see the sun a second longer.
But finally you, too, will have to rest.
After some sleep the morning sees you stronger.

This strength helps you to cover the next miles
crossing the emptiness of the vast ocean.
Perhaps you pass some smaller isles,
leave them behind in forward motion.

How many sunsets will have come and gone
until you reach your aim depends on you.
The sun will shine as it has always shone,
you follow your ambition to come true.

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.
