Thistle-Puffs

The thistle-puffs upon the gentle breeze
Shimmer in the sun like fairies’ wings
As seedling thoughts adrift in minds at ease

The rustle sounds among the swaying trees
Whisper of the joy that summer brings
With thistle-puffs upon the gentle breeze

The flowers flirt and dreamy insects tease
Sipping sap and dancing coded rings
As seedling thoughts adrift in minds at ease

The chirping lilt of nature’s symphonies
Harmonise with songs the season sings
Of thistle-puffs upon the gentle breeze

The swirling tides upon the restless seas
Conjure waves of wild imaginings
Like seedling thoughts adrift in minds at ease

The feathered clouds appear as heaven’s keys
Portal to a world of secret things
Like thistle-puffs upon the gentle breeze
And seedling thoughts adrift in minds at ease

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.
