Patient Dreams

I wish you all the best in life
Through seasons and extremes
But most of all I wish for you
The gift of patient dreams

I hope you’ll travel far and wide
Cross oceans, mountains, streams
But also find within your mind
The land of patient dreams

I trust you’ll be a great success
However hard it seems
To take your time and stone by stone
To build your patient dreams

I know you’ll suffer some defeats
There’ll be ill-fated schemes
And yet you’ll rise and rise again
Recalling patient dreams

I wish you joy and love in life
With rainbows and sunbeams
But most of all, in great and small
I wish you patient dreams

String, Donuts, Bubbles and Me: Favourite Philosophical Poems

This creative collection, now in its 3rd edition, brings together philosophical poems by Wayne Visser. In this anthology, he muses on subjects ranging from space, angels and destiny to time, science and meaning in life. According to scientists / The world’s made of string / That buzzes and fuzzes / Or some such strange thing / It’s also a donut / That curls round a hole / With middles and riddles / Just like a fish bowl / And there’s no mistaking / It’s more than 3-D / With twenty or plenty / Dimensions unseen / Still others insist / It’s really a bubble / That’s popping and bopping / Through the lenses of Hubble. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
