Comet Sonnet

Ever since meeting, we’ve taken to flight
Reached for the stars and touched the moon
We’ve stood together through changing light
From dusk to dawn, from midnight to noon
Time and again, we’ve crashed to the ground
Caught in a storm, too close to the sun
Our wings have broken, our feet been bound
Our entangled dreams have come undone
Certainty in life’s like a blazing comet
Its passage as spectacular as rare
And incredible changes can come from it
If we have the heart to hope and dare
For at last I’m certain and I know it’s true:
We were meant to be – and I love you

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.
