The mind uses many labels
but the heart only knows one word
A tale of two apples
some time ago I bought two apples
one I ate the same day
it tasted like cardboard (and not at all like an apple!)
The second one I put in my bag
not wanting to throw it away
because it’s food, right?
It’s been lying in my office for weeks now
growing older and older
while I’m waiting for it to rot
Today I finally put it in the trash
and got a new one immediately.
This is an analogy
oh, to be like the tress, shedding their leaves
each one a little love letter, trusting that spring will come.
in order for me and you
I like to imagine
that we all have inner worlds
some are evasive
and some draw your attention
because they carry within themselves
the promise of
parts of my heart go missing
because they are needed somewhere else
“sometimes i feel bound to the limit”
yes – i know the feeling. luckily not so much lately. this is an old drawing. but since the image popped into my mind during several conversations i had lately, i thought i should publish it.
