Little Flower

Gorgeous little flower
From far off distant shores
Caught in your finest hour
You bloom each time I pause

You shine in all you glory
With petals spring unfurled
And hid inside this story
You travel round the world

Pressed between these pages
I see your smiling face
Your beauty through the ages
Helps me to mark my place

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.
