Brush Strokes

Fragrant flower blooms
In the cracks of grey pavement crowds –
A passing intoxication

Luminous flare bursts
In the swell of black cinema skies –
An accidental touch

Mesmeric song ripples
In the glass of reflective train ponds –
A siren glance

Exotic spice floats
On the lips of swirling cocktail seas –
An innocent kiss

Butterfly caress flits
Across the page of white daydream script –
A love fantasy

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.
