Dreaming of My Muse

We met beneath the veil of night,
‘Cross time and space, to re-unite,
Like friends of old, like karmic mates,
To exchange dreams, and recall fates

Then into the ocean, an island our goal,
Refreshing our bodies and cleansing our souls,
And finally to stand in naked embrace,
A vision of beauty, a moment of grace

‘Pon waking once more to the bright light of day,
The shimmering mirage of my dream fades away,
And I’m left with a memory, a few precious clues,
Of the glorious meeting between me and my Muse

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.
