Healers of the Earth

Some may see a patch of dirt
But you see so much more
You see a place where seeds can grow
Where nature can restore
The living soil, the buds of hope
The blooms and buzzing bees
You see a place of flourishing
Of birds and frogs and trees
For we are healers of the Earth
We make her frayed web whole
And as we do, we heal ourselves
In body, mind and soul

Wishing Leaves: Favourite Nature Poems

This creative collection, now in its 3rd edition, brings together nature poems by Wayne Visser, celebrating the diversity, beauty and ever-changing moods of our planet. The anthology includes many old favourites like “I Think I Was a Tree Once” and “A Bug’s Life”, as well as brand new poems like “Monet’s Dream” and “The Environmentalist”. Then as we turned our faces to the moon / Our hands entwined, our hearts in sync, in tune / We felt the fingers of the silken breeze / And made our wishes on the falling leaves / A gust of wind set off a whispered sigh / Among the trees that leaned against the sky.  Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
