Ah, the lure of books
Such sweet seduction!
The gentle curves of a swaying body of words
The tasteful fabric of an exquisitely draped cover
The alluring glint in the eyes of an enigmatic character
The finely applied make-up of colour-textured illustrations
The possessive dance of an evolving rhythmic narrative
The aesthetic beauty of a pose of inflective phrase
At the caress of literature
All resistance crumbles!

Seize the Day: Favourite Inspirational Poems
This creative collection, now in its 3rd edition, brings together favourite inspirational poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology takes us on a journey through the peaks and troughs of life, celebrating the indomitable human spirit.. It includes many old favourites like “Poets Must Be” and “Chasing the Blue”, as well as brand new poems like “The Writer” and “Making Ripples”. Sages through the ages wisely say: / Carpe Diem – seize the dawning day / Oh, would that I could assuage that thirst / But the day conspires to seize me first! / With the hurry and scurry / Of home’s frantic flurry / And the hustle and bustle / Of work’s tangled tussle.
