Blue Skies

When the skies are blue
And the world is bright
I am smiling also –
Let us bask in the sunshine!

When the grey clouds come
And the sun disappears
I will be here still –
Let us hold hands in the gloom!

When the lightening strikes
And the thunderclaps rage
I will tremble also –
Let us cling tight in the storm!

When the showers fall
And the land is drenched
I too will be crying –
Let us slow dance in the rain!

When the arch unveils
And the colours enchant
I will marvel also –
Let us fly over the rainbow!

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.
