Changing Light

The crisp mauve light of morning
Of new beginnings and promises
Of kindled hope and faith
Of warm inspiration
Of sunrise

The bright white light of day-time
Of glad adventures and achievements
Of blazing love and life
Of hot dedication
Of noontide

The blood red light of evening
Of sad completion and letting go
Of parting words and ways
Of cool liberation
Of sunset

The pitch black light of night-time
Of calm reflecting and reviving
Of healing rest and care
Of cold germination
Of midnight

Wishing Leaves: Favourite Nature Poems

This creative collection, now in its 3rd edition, brings together nature poems by Wayne Visser, celebrating the diversity, beauty and ever-changing moods of our planet. The anthology includes many old favourites like “I Think I Was a Tree Once” and “A Bug’s Life”, as well as brand new poems like “Monet’s Dream” and “The Environmentalist”. Then as we turned our faces to the moon / Our hands entwined, our hearts in sync, in tune / We felt the fingers of the silken breeze / And made our wishes on the falling leaves / A gust of wind set off a whispered sigh / Among the trees that leaned against the sky.  Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
