Catch Me If You Can

Inspired by BookCrossing

I’ve been released into the wild
Just like a wide-eyed, wondrous child
And though I travel far from home
I know I’ll seldom be alone

I’m making friends along the way
And teaching adults how to play
I’m bringing unexpected joys
To lots of little girls and boys

To some, I am a mystery
To others, like a fantasy
I bring cold thrills and warm romance
But is it fate or is it chance?

So catch me if you can today
Tomorrow I’ll be miles away
Or maybe just around the block
Or in your favourite coffee shop

And if you find me, pick me up
I’ll share my life and bring you luck
Then set me free to make more friends
So that my story never ends

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.
