A Splash of Colour

A splash of colour in a sky, which otherwise was grey
I met, above clouds on high, an artist on that day

On homeward flight, from my cocoon spun of corporate tire
She seemed to me a butterfly, with wings of bright desire

How was it that we spoke so free, on subjects so diverse?
As if upon a stage we played, our dialogue rehearsed

For her, a brush, for me, a pen, are keys to hidden doors
Behind which on eagle wings, passion swirls and soars

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. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
