Love Floats

Love floats
babbling brook of nervous flirtation
swirling swoon of giddy infatuation
turbid torrent of raging passion
melting mist of saturated bliss
emotional eddies of surface tension
umbilical undercurrents of deep connection
futile frothing of angry white-water
wanton whirlpools of selfish indulgence
sobering storms of tempestuous destruction
daydreaming drifting of reflective contentment
steady stream of time-honoured commitment
salvation spring of bubbling rejuvenation
Love floats

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.
