Magical Writing – Poem

Magical Writing

By Diana Arco

Magical writing

Where such illogical

Fantasy places

Are hiding a secret truth,

Within its tale sentences

Time is frozen

Into this capsule of virtue.

There’s clarity and expectation

To reach the last chapter,

While you read

You enjoy a nice cup of tea

And delight yourself

With your favorite sweet.

Magical writing,

Dancing words

To your eyes

And music’s beating

Of your heart

Right into your being.

There’s no philosophical


Either a labyrinth

To get lost.

It’s such an amazing structure

That takes you

Where your reading belongs,

And time it’s not a waste

When you’re enjoying yourself

While you treasure

Inside its sentences

Such life’s experiences

Of light, life, love,

And freedom.

So In every turn

The magical writing

Takes you aboard.

“All The Light, Life, Love, And Freedom From The Heart And Soul.”

The Piece – Poem

The Piece

By Diana Arco

You look at it

With fixed determination,

And the more you look,

The more you lose yourself

In its perplexing inspiration.

How is it possible

You can lose yourself

Inside this dimension?

It’s such beauty that calls you,

Attracts you in every single corner of its shape.

And for a moment

Of such perplexity

You know that you’re great

For being able to discover

Something that makes you smile

And appreciate.

It’s just not a piece,

Not an sculpture,

A painting, an structure.

It’s the soul that lives inside

The creation of each creator,

And to your eyes

The piece has achieved perfection

In all its expression.

The Perfect Rhyme – Poem

The Perfect Rhyme

By Diana Arco

There is no searching for the perfect rhyme,

There’s only you and the poem to be.

No matter your absurd justifications,

Complications, doubts and concerns…

For the poem, free to be,

Out from your own beauty and success,

From yourself and the universe of your own care,

And when the time reaches

To the point of no return,

Seat back, relax and enjoy,

At least for a while.

For once you’ve done this gift

You’re not going to be able to quit.

So the next rhyme for you to meet

Waiting In a new poem stays to breathe.

That adventure is already in its corner,

Like a welcome wind

Satisfying your need…

The creation,

An unstoppable burst of all wonders,

Lives within your being.

Embrace Me – Poem

Embrace Me
By Diana Arco

Between questions and wonders
Long oceans of feelings
And infinity answers awakes
The truth that’s been waiting for.

Me, another light in the world,
I have the freedom to choose again.
So forget my ignorance
And I beg you to embrace me as I’am.

For even there is time
And a place to play games
This is not one of them.
This is the life that breathes within me.

Always hunger for the best,
The riches from the heart and earth
When the money pays for food,
Entertainment, and house’s bills.

The wind, strong and tender,
Is touching my face,
I smile towards a new opportunity
Where I could be embraced as I’am.

Inspiring respect for the chosen road,
I hug myself enthusiastic
With all my joy
When nothing can take away my dreams…but myself.

And nobody has no face,
For I’am me where I belong.
So dark shadows of negativeness
I’am seeing all of you flying away from my home.

Embrace Life

My Official Book Cover Reveal – “The Composer And The Flycatcher”

Greetings, everyone!

Finally the time has come for me to reveal the book cover of my debut title: The Composer and The Flycatcher.

Information taken from: http://www.prlog.org/12280859-the-composer-and-the-flycatcher-book-cover-official-reveal.html
“The Composer and the Flycatcher,” book cover official reveal

DonnaInk Publications, L.L.C. announces the official cover design for “The Composer and the Flycatcher,” a fantasy poetry – prose YA tale of Ms. Diana Arco a talented poetess from Mexico.


“The Composer and the Flycatcher,” by Diana Arco
PRLog (Press Release) – Feb. 10, 2014 – ORLANDO, Fla. — Ms. Donna L. Quesinberry, CEO-President announced, impending release of a suite of poetry – prose literary titles in January of 2014. One of these impending titles, is Ms. Diana Arco’s title, “The Composer and the Flycatcher.” Each book’s cover design is representative of the author’s literary portrayal. For “The Composer and the Flycatcher, author Diana Arco shares her own illustrative designs. As an entertainment and talent agent, Ms. Arco arrives from Mexico onto the literary scene and her cover design for her impending release is her very own creation.

The cover design of “The Composer and the Flycatcher” features a vibrant composition of color, which is contrasted by blackened font and shadows where the protagonist lies. Through an internal creativity, Ms. Arco illustrates the most poignant and touching scene from her fantasy YA story on the cover.

Readers note an open window revealing a blue sky, where her title emits from. The sky delivers the author’s message of hope and its timely arrival. Diana intends for readers to gain insights and understanding regarding hope and the fact answers arrive when we need them the most. The Flycatcher, is featured in red and flies beneath the window having entered the protagonist’s home. He greets readers and the story’s characters with wide open wings, as if to say, “I am here! I have arrived! I can help and inspire you, no matter how insignificant I appear to you, I am able to achieve amazing things! All you need to do is listen to my song and hear the voice that reasonnates there. Allow me the opportunity to share my message . . . the message of the Flycatcher . . . it will be revealed.” Torn sheet music and notes are displayed to represent the Flycatcher as the story’s muse.

Bright reds, oranges and browns further illuminate the scene leading to white fog and shadows onto the back cover. This paints the mysticism of the tale and shares the songbird’s brave determination to traverse the gales of shadowlands in order to aid the story’s protagonist. Guido (the composer) is represented in black and surrounded by foggy mists . . . readers may ask, “Why?” The answer lies in the story of Guido, who is living a terrible reality until the Flycatcher flies through his window and shares his song of hope. Having lost the will to play his music and compose new works, Guido feigns as his talents appear lost and his inspiration gone. He appears in a void where no notes exist, until the Flycatcher makes his presence known and reignites his passion and creativity..

At the incarnation of the Flycatcher and his warbling, Guido raises a hand of acceptance in order to delve head-first into the mysticism of opportunity. He shines once again as a composer, playing his violin and creating new concertos. The Flycatcher serves as a transcendent muse for Guido, but at what cost? Readers must remember, ambiguity surrounds the Flycatcher and the dear Composer Guido remains in the dark or does he . . .

“Any form of literature is born not only to entertain, but also to share this truth: “All things are possible when we do them with love.” How many times have you told someone, “I Love You” through artwork, dancing, singing or the written word? It is my hope, “The Composer and the Flycatcher” ignites a flame in your soul for meditation and appreciation of the written word; I believe words dance freely and perfectly in every sentence of love. They are dancing free, but with perfect rhythm in each sentence of love . . . for each of us.” ~ Author Diana Arco, Mexico.

What’s behind “The Composer and The Flycatcher” tale?

Greetings! 🙂 ❤

When I’ve got the inspiration to write “The Composer  and T’he Flycatcher”, yes it came from an early baroque song and from the singing of a bird who used to visit me outside my window some years ago-  I felt inside of me the wish to create an amazing world from it.  Yes, a fantasy tale, but “soaking” it with  feelings that we all experience in our lives..   When I say “soaking”it, it’s for example, when I write a letter or a poem to someone I love and to a friend, I’am not just writing it, I’am “soaking” my words with my all my heart and soul.  It’s like I’am “sending” myself within every single word, stop, comma, exclamtion and space written in the page.  If I don’t feel it, I’am not writing anything to anybody at all.  When I write something is like taking care of a garden.  You know your flowers and your plants will die if you don’t give them water, if you don’t give that especial attention that they need.   You love your garden and you have this urge need to have it always beatiful, to nurture it, so you can visit it and enjoy it all the times you want to.

So, what’s behind “The Composer and The Flycatcher” tale?

I’ve been told and I’ve been searching about “what’s our purpose as human beings here in this world?”  I used to ask to myself the same question over and over again.   “What I’am doing in here?”  I used to said to myself “I don’t want to waste my time in here”  “I wish to have knowledge!”  “I need to know If I really have a purpose in here!”  I asked to myself over and over “Is it breathing and feeling only my purposes?”  “Is it just having a good job and earn money?”   “Is it just born, get old, and die?”  I used to complain about the ignorance I was myself into.   But then, it took me a while, but I came to a conclusion that we all are here to find and experiment unconditional love in every possible way of our existence.

But, what kind of love?

  • Love to God.
  • Love to yourself first.
  • Love to your especial people in your life – family, boyfriend, girlfriend, husband, wife, kids, friends.
  • Love to your world.  it’s our home, the only place we have.
  • Love to your commitments, your goals.  To all that you do in your every day life.

I’ve have experienced that when I do things with love, there are no doubts in myself and things go amazingly great!  When you don’t believe it, when you don’t feel it right, when you just do something just to do it… it’s when you experiece the “bumps” in the road.  Even “thinking”  Hey , I might like to try this!  and there is no love, not excitment within, even if you have all the best intention in your mind, if you don’t put your heart, and your soul to what you do, you are going down.

Yes, it’s valid to feel ourselves “lost” sometimes, to feel “tired” and that we are not going to make it… but you gotta get up, trust in yourself, your love, because life it’s so exciting, so amazing, to be like this all the time.   Embrace yourself, cheer up!

So, again, what’s behind “The Composer and The Flycatcher” tale?

Ít’s love!

Please, stay in touch… there is more to come.



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

The Inspiration Behind “The Composer And The Flycatcher”

Greetings! 🙂

I’m taking this moment to talk about how did I find the inspiration to write my book “The Composer and The Flycatcher”…

I must say I wasn’t seated watching my white page in word document on my laptop’s screen, letting the time goes by while I was waiting for the inspiration to arrive.    As you know the inspiration arrives at any moment, any place, any time, so I always have with me a small notebook that I have inside my purse.

So, how this adventure started four years go?

I love to listen music, any kind of music, and there are times when I just feel the need to listen classical and back then I was searching the internet to download amazing pieces to my Ipod.   One day I came accross with a piece from the Early baroque european time.   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baroque_music  (Please open to read about this amazing music and time).

In this particular piece the flute is playing and the violin is answering… and I just fell totally in love with the sounds.    Here is the link if you would like to listen to it   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4iXh8JOlP2s   Please go to the  48:46,  yes, at the end, it’s the last song from all the album.   Enjoy!

Now, I need to make a break about the “Early Baroque” song to jump into a very excited experience that happened  to me that also inspired me to write my book.  I remember very well.  It all started one saturday morning in the summer of 2009 when I was visited by a bird.  The little one started to sing outside my window.   It was so nice!  Even my mom listened the singing.   I remember I told her I’ve never listened to a bird singing like that before.  Unfortunatelly the singing didn’t last much, I only was able to enjoy it for a few weeks… until this day I haven’t been able to listen any other bird singing like the little one who used to visit me.

Back to the “Early Baroque” song again…  One day I was listening to the song… the flute speaking and the violin answering.  Then, somehow it hit me.  In my mind I saw an old man dancing while playing his violin and a little bird flying around him doing the part of the flute.   The man was wearing the Baroque’s time clothing  http://www.reconstructinghistory.com/blog/common-mens-clothing-in-the-early-baroque-period.html.  He was dancing in his living room, happy.    Then I remembered the little bird that used to sing outside my window, and it just all made sense to me.  I took my notebook and I started to write some ideas…  and  I wrote the plot after that, the characters’ descriptions, the colors and the smell of their city and their home, the music, the feelings, the pains…  It took me hours, then days, but I was so happy with my idea.

Then I thought about finding the right bird for my tale…

Since the baroque time took place in Europe, specially in Italy,  this is where I decided my tale will take place.   And after a long search of possible birds,  I came up with this little one…  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HEwyJRw6Yc    Isn’t he lovely?  Sometimes  I love to see him flying and singing inside my head.

Please, stay in touch for more…


Diana ❤  🙂

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