Dance Me

Dance me to an echo’s beat
A pulse of tests and time
Dance me to a gecko’s feet
Of sticky words and rhyme

Dance me kindly
Dance me blindly
Dance me to the ends

Dance me lightly
Dance me flightly
Dance – forever friends

Dance me to a wicked wind
A swirl of leaves and dust
Dance me even though I’ve sinned
With angry words and lust

Dance me badly
Dance me madly
Dance me to the ends

Dance me wildly
Dance me childly
Dance – forever friends

Dance me to a different tune
A rhythm soft and slow
Dance me to a waning moon
Of memories’ ebb and flow

Dance me surely
Dance me purely
Dance me to the ends

Dance me sadly
Dance me gladly
Dance – forever friends

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.
