Chasing the Blue

We’re chasing after blue
In skies of white and grey
The gap where sun bursts through
To brighten stormy days

We’re shooting for the blue
Beyond the green and brown
When earthly strides won’t do
To take us where we’re bound

We’re dreaming of the blue
Where oceans ebb and flow
Our aim and flight is true
Like arrows from the bow

We’re reaching for the blue
Ahead of humdrum days
We’re powered by the hue
Of shining azure ways

We’re chasing after blue
And shall not rest or tire
Together we’ll get through
And quench our blue desire

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.
