Afterglow

The flash of your smile still glints
The charge of your pulse still flints
The spark of your laugh still bursts
The flame of your voice still thirsts

The wisp of your scent still looms
The blush of your look still blooms
The breeze of your breath still strokes
The spice of your taste still stokes

The sear of your kiss still burns
The mark of your touch still yearns
The heat of your blood still flows
The fire of your heart still glows

Icarus: Favourite Love Poems

This creative collection, now in its 2nd edition, brings together love poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology traces love’s agony (“Broken Dreams”) and ecstasy (“Galaxies Cart-Wheeling”), from first blush (“Almost Strangers”) to full bloom (“Say ‘I Do!’”), as we fly to love. You’ve given me the gift of golden wings / The endless sphere of blue imaginings / The chance to rise above the silver clouds / The will to cast off untold ghostly shrouds / Don’t fly too high / Don’t rise too fast / Don’t tease the sky / Don’t taunt the past / You’ve given me the hope of warmer days / The blessed kiss of the sun’s fiery rays. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
