Wish Upon a Star

One day I’ll wish upon a star
And see you shining from afar
Gazing down from that high place
Winking with your twinkling face

I’ll see your smile upon the sea
Reflecting on the moonlit beach
Dancing in the playful waves
Playing silly dolphins’ games

And when the sun is setting low
I’ll feel inside a soft warm glow
It is your love deep in my heart
Reminding me we’ll never part

And when the sun is rising new
I’ll see its rays and know it’s true:
That night’s not death, for every morn
The light shines bright, and life’s reborn.

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.
