Rainbow Beads

Your life is strung with sacred strings
Of shining, rainbow beads
Each capturing in brilliant ray
Your shimmering thoughts and deeds

You are the weaver of great skill
But cannot craft alone
The patterns hail from hidden source
The colours are home-grown

Each glistening bead becomes a gift
Upon the trail of life
And looking back, your path is strewn
With sparkling gems of light

This masterpiece of joy and strife
This quilt without mistake
Is ever-changing, never-ending –
A meaning-filled mosaic

So hold your beads up to the sun
Let inspiration shine
And thread your dreams upon the web
Of Spirit’s grand design

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.
