The Soundtrack of Our Lives

All it takes is a song, a riff, or a note
And I’m transported back, spirited away
I’m a time traveller to somewhere remote
Yet familiar, a place where I used to play

Music is a form of magic, an enchantment
That reveals clues to secrets of the heart
Music is a kind of mushroom, an hallucinogen
That opens doors to wild worlds we can chart

All it takes is a beat, a hook, or a voice
And we’re reconnected, spellbound in a blink
We’re in the memory maze of fate and choice
Reliving our dreams, and dancing in sync.

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.
