Gorky Park

A Tribute to Moscow, Russia

A summer day in Gorky Park
The world is freshly green and bright
New lovers stroll and children lark
While bladers glide in happy flight

A sky of grey, a wrung-out heart
My world is teetered on a knife
I wander, silent and apart
While shadows stalk my happy life

Life in Transit: Favourite Travel & Tribute Poems

This creative collection, now in its 2nd edition, brings together travel and tribute poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology pays tribute to the likes of Nelson Mandela, Maya Angelou, Barack Obama, Antoni Gaudí & Leonardo da Vinci, and reflects on travels ranging from China and South Africa to Ecuador and Russia. Life is lived in the in-between / In transit / Between coming and going / Between staying and moving on / Between here and there / And what we call home / What we call settled or contented / Is merely a resting place / A station for refuelling / A nexus for reconnecting / A junction for changing direction.
