I came to this place, alone and confused
My true love shattered, my trust abused

Dream catchers and dragonflies
Bird feathers and butterflies

I came to this place, bruised and bleeding
And was welcomed into a home of healing

Bright crystals and pixie folk
Aroma candles and incense smoke

I came to this place, and found respite
A sister’s care, a nephew’s delight

Forest walks and playful hours
Lush green plants and cheerful flowers

I came to this place, exiled refugee
And discovered here a sanctuary

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.
