“Believe” – Poem

teach-me-to-believe

Greetings, Everyone!
I’m back to you with a poem that I wrote about this amazing word “Believe”. I’m sharing my own experience in here. I’ve been able to enjoy such blessings in my life, and those didn’t arrived to me from “out of the blue”, neither by a “coincidence.” I chose to “believe” I deserve these gifts, blessings, and I sent away all my fears and doubts, my ignorance.

Believe
by Diana Arco

There is an explosion from the heart.
The choice of such powerful light,
It’s the one that is telling you
To believe anything is possible now.

It’s the inspiration that it’s alive
When the right time arrives,
Waking you up from that dream of ignorance.
Be love – be smart – believe in yourself.

Under the clear sky of your own treasures,
The trees of your dancing winds,
And the sun and the moon of your ideals…
believe, believe, and believe.

There is no room for doubts and fears,
Those walls are falling down from the existance
Of that reality of pain and misunderstandings.
Believe is picking up the broken pieces from the past.

The sparkling dots of awareness,
Going up and down, and everywhere.
Today the difference is dancing
To the rhythm believing song from the heart and soul.

Sincerely,
Diana.

*** So, what are you waiting for? Start to believe in yourself “now” ***

🙂 ” All the light, life, love, and freedom from the heart and soul. ” ❤

Short poems for writers – Writing affirmations.

PRECIOUS GEMS

Greetings, Everyone! 🙂

I’m here today to talk to you about the power of “affirmations.”

But, what’s an affirmation?
“An affirmation is a repeated statement that is either spoken aloud, thought or written down. Affirmations can dramatically alter the direction of our life through the programming of our beliefs, self-talk and self concepts.” Yes, but you gotta mean it, not just repeat the words over and over. You gotta let your heart and soul to take control, and you’ll see how good does it feels, and how amazing it is because this exercise from the consciouness really works.

I wrote short poems that I use myself to inspire me, to open myself, and to help me to enjoy better my hours of writing. These are my vitamins, my orange juices, and yes, my good meals for the soul.

I’m taking the freedom to share some of them with you… my precious gems of joy and inspiration.

#1
“Under the sky of my imagination
The ray of light comes down,
Forming the words and shapes
For my tale to take place now.”

#2
“Just this space for me
To keep molding it with love.
The flowers and the trees
The wind that blows
All my thoughts free.”

#3
“I know I have to let her out each day.
She is here with me all the time…
But when she runs
I always catch her.”
My Voice

#4
“Through the doors
Of your imaginary vision
The reality arrives
Starting with one single word.”

#5
“Do your writings with love.
Soaking your words
With your best intentions.
You’re the master of your tale.”

You could write your own short poems – affirmations – in “post it notes” to have them around you. Write them down anywhere you feel comfortable: journals, notebooks, a magnetic board.

Ohhh, one more “light” in here…
Smile and have fun because when you really enjoy doing something, when you really do things with love, it’s when your best always comes out.

Sincerely,
Diana.

My Dear Journal – Thouths and Poem.

Writing journal

Hi, Everyone! 🙂

I’m here with you today with this need that I have to talk to you – with my poetry style, of course -about how important it is (at least it is for me) to have a journal close where I can write ideas, thoughts, quotes, even dreams. Also where if I see an article that I like from a magazine, newspaper, or if I get a written message from a relative or a friend, and a concert ticket… I just glue it right away on my journal’s pages to read them all over again.
I even have a journal where I write my all time favorite poems from my favorite writers.
I must say that I’am a journal collector and I haven’t used them all, but I know someday I’ll pick one and I’ll use it the best way I can… it’s just not writing on it, it’s enjoying the discovering of a new land, a new character, a new tale, now that I’am an author about to get published, I’am taking out all my journals and making choices for my next title.
And now, in a deep personal way, writing on a journal it’s having one on one communication with your own soul and heart…I’ve been able to find “practicaly myself” “what I really want in my life to manifest, to achieve” in the pages I write. Each journal it’s just an amazing adventure for me, not an itimidating white page that frustrates me and don’t let me be. Writing it’s one of my all time life’s pleasures.
I feel the need and the love to share with you that I write every single day to the man I love..it’s something that I really have the need to do because I’am also sending him all my love within my words. Even if I write the same words “I Love You” and “Thank You” over and over again…”trust me”…there are words that we always need to express and to listen to. It doesn’t matter how many times we write them, we are never “full” to keep eating them, savouring them, and always wanting more and more because those are not empty words, those are the life of the one who wrote them… at least is what I’ve been experiencing myself.

My Dear Journal.
By Diana Arco.

I saw you one day and I couldn’t help it,
I felt that sparkle need to take you home with me.
I saw your inviting cover and your temptimg white pages.
My soul’s inspiration would give a good use to your existence.

I took you home and I only made it to the kitchen.
I didn’t bothered to get a coffee or tea.
I found my pen and I started to write right away on you.
My name, my initials, and your arrival’s date first.

My hand was flying free on you.
I was enjoying the moment,
Me…such a passionate writer
That cannn’t live without expression.

The ink of the pen will always run out
but never the writer’s imagination.
The pencil will disappear
but never the writer’s love.

My dear journal.
You’re always waiting for me.
Alive, so full of my knowledge
and also with my ignorance.

Yes, it’s all mine…
It’s my right choice and my fault.
I’m an angel and a devil,
but I’am always at home.

Thank you for staying in touch!

🙂 “All the light, life, love, and freedom from the heart and soul.” ❤

Write with love… Even when you are not writing a romance novel.

Greetings, Everyone! 🙂

I’m back to you with a new poem that I took the freedom to write about:

“Write with love… Even when you are not writing a romance novel.”
By Diana Arco.

I write every single day,
The joy that I can’t deny it,
My time and my space I embrace…
It’s me the one who is behind of my universe.
The creator, the villain, the healer, my own heroe…
I’am not asking for any permission,
I follow my insticts.

I’am the poetess of my own craft.
I don’t care in my present writings
About signs, exclamations, and stops.
I’ll do that later, when I have to,
For all my attention goes to my inspiration,
For my words to flow as free as the beating of my heart
Dancing to the rhythm of my own song.

When you write with love,
Even if you are fantasy or horror,
It is when you open the door
To what you are really looking for.
It’s that perception that you’re experiencing now,
The illusion that you make it come true.
You are forming moving pictures inside your mind.

You write what you write.
I don’t believe you have a hollow for a heart,
And I’m sorry if you choose to be one…when you have the choice.
So I’am telling you again,
By experience I say,
Write with all your love
Even when you are not writing a romance novel.

* Stay tuned for more to come *

Sincerely,
Diana.

❤ All the light, life, love, and freedom from the heart and soul 🙂

You’re more than welcome to follow me – Poem about “social media”

Hello, Everyone! 🙂

I’m here with you -today- to talk to you about my experience with “social media”…

Note- The word “Today” is a very especial one for me. When I’am telling you “Today” it doesn’t matter when you are here reading my posts, it’s always “today” for you. It’s your own moment, your own time… The “Now”, which is one of the most powerful affirmations in life.

These are my own links… so far.
And You’re more than welcome to follow me because I also wish to know from you too.

(I just opened my account few days ago)

And I’m going to open an account in http://www.linkedin.com/

I’m pretty new doing this (a month and two weeks) and I’ve been learning a lot. I must thank my publisher Ms. Quesinberry http://www.donnaink.org/ and all my new friends and followers for such amazing tips they’ve been sharing with me to make more enjoyable my “social media” adventure… because this is what it is, at least it is for me… an adventure. I’am having such a blast so far, and I’am looking forward for more surprises, and challenges, to come.

My debut title “The Composer and The Flycatcher” it’s scheduled to get published in September this year in ebook and print formats. I’am so happy and grateful for this opportunity. My dream is coming true.
You see lots of books around the world, and you – as a reader – I bet you struggle sometimes with yourself to choose the ones you are going to take home with you. This happens to me too.
Maybe some people is not aware about it, but there is a whole “history” behind each book, behind each writer, because not all what the writer writes finds a place in a shelf… that place it’s gold, it’s a medal itself for each one of us, writers, in all the world. So, I’m here in the internet while I’am waiting for my book to arrive…and yes, I’am going to be here “with you” as well after that. This is just the beginning of the road.

Now, my poem.
Enjoy!

You’re more than welcome to follow me
By Diana Arco

I’am a writer
But I’am a reader first.
I wrote a fantasy tale
In my own beautiful poetic form,
The one I wished myself
To find in a shelf.
I had my manuscript ready
To send it where it belongs.
I experienced rejections,
But I believe we all been there before.
I found a publisher who believes in me,
In what I wrote.
We are together in this adventure
Working to achieve what we deserve.
I was told to make myself present
Right there in the internet world,
“You are a writer about to get published.
Now it’s time for you to make some noise.”
I’ve been here since that moment of awareness
Sharing, giving, doing all the best I can.
You’re more than welcome to follow me,
To pick me up when you find me out there.
We both have the light within us,
The writer and the reader experience
In our time of expression.
That need from the soul to deliver a joy,
The magic of this neverending way of communication,
The word.

Sincerely,
Diana.

Stay tuned for more updates, surprises, poems, and more to come.

❤ All the light, life, love, and freedom from the heart and soul. 🙂
