Moon Whisper

Each year, I scratch and fumble to make my mark
Set ink to page, a searchlight in the dark
Not knowing how the letters land, hit or miss
Yet they remind us both to follow our bliss

Each year, I muse and mumble to say my bit
Patch heart to sleeve, bat wings that glide and flit
Not knowing if the moon whispers above you
Nor if, like me, it murmurs: I love you

Icarus: Favourite Love Poems

This creative collection, now in its 2nd edition, brings together love poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology traces love’s agony (“Broken Dreams”) and ecstasy (“Galaxies Cart-Wheeling”), from first blush (“Almost Strangers”) to full bloom (“Say ‘I Do!’”), as we fly to love. You’ve given me the gift of golden wings / The endless sphere of blue imaginings / The chance to rise above the silver clouds / The will to cast off untold ghostly shrouds / Don’t fly too high / Don’t rise too fast / Don’t tease the sky / Don’t taunt the past / You’ve given me the hope of warmer days / The blessed kiss of the sun’s fiery rays. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
