Walking in the Air

Oh, the places I’ve been
The things I’ve seen
With you, it’s true:
From London lights to opera flights
And orange crescent moons
From apple walks to bedroom talks
And bright un-birthday tunes

Oh, the mountains I’ve crossed
The fears I’ve lost
With you, I flew:
From setting suns to dancing drums
And whirling dervish flair
From rhyming streams to snowman dreams
And walking on the air

Oh, the journeys we’ll take
The home we’ll make
With you, life’s new:
From rocking trains to picture frames
And ventures of the mind
From battles won to family fun
And destinies entwined

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.
