5: Ansicht eines Hafens

A harbour like
the one next to
my childhood home –
behind the masts
of anchored ships
the sunset shone –
I need not see a painting
to see such a scene;
if I just close my eyes I know
I’ll visit in a dream –
the only difference in-between
is masts and sails,
propellers and machines.
