Compassion is the keyword in this poetry book. Buddhist Gino Leineweber says: for all beings on earth. In short: compassion for life.
He wonders: To what end? Who am I myself? What is love? Do we know whom we love? Aren't we just an illusion of ourselves, like the shadow on the wall of Platon's cave? Questions that may fill up a whole life of meditation, I'm sure.
In the end, it seems that life has no entrance or exit. Time leaks out. The blue planet earth is a mere invention of our brain because all is imagined, except for serenity - the absolute calm. Nirvana.
From the epilogue by Uwe Friesel
