Golden Thread

Hanging by a golden thread
Between the living and the dead
Between beginning and the end
Between a soul mate and a friend

Choosing not to sever ties
In the midst of near goodbyes
In the midst of stepping back
In the midst of changing track

Weaving strands into a rope
Across the gulf of damaged hope
Across the stream of misled fears
Across the space of future years

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.
