So you want to know my secret?
The mysterious light in my eyes
And rainbow mist in my smile?
The phantom blush on my brow
And glistening glow on my skin?
The flinted spark of my touch
And flickering flame of my mind?
My secret is simply this:
I have swallowed the sun!
(That fiery orb some call love).

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.
