Caterpillar Kisses

We took a walk in London’s park
That balmy summer’s day
We let off steam
And dared to dream
As stars came out to play
And we were dancing in the dark

We sat beneath the verdant trees
Upon that bench of love
While all around
We heard the sound
Of whispers from above
And so we listened to the leaves

We filled our hearts with wishes
Upon that first bright star
We cast away
Our cares that day
But best of all by far
Were all those caterpillar kisses

Icarus: Favourite Love Poems

This creative collection, now in its 2nd edition, brings together love poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology traces love’s agony (“Broken Dreams”) and ecstasy (“Galaxies Cart-Wheeling”), from first blush (“Almost Strangers”) to full bloom (“Say ‘I Do!’”), as we fly to love. You’ve given me the gift of golden wings / The endless sphere of blue imaginings / The chance to rise above the silver clouds / The will to cast off untold ghostly shrouds / Don’t fly too high / Don’t rise too fast / Don’t tease the sky / Don’t taunt the past / You’ve given me the hope of warmer days / The blessed kiss of the sun’s fiery rays. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
