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

Misinterpretation,

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.”

Writing Our Love History – Poem

Writing our love history
By Diana Arco

The strong heart
Beats alive,
And the soul’s intensity
Of the being,
Expression of our purest love.

We bring back to ourselves
All the good we have done
And we’re still doing
For both of us.

Together, in our love story,
The one we’re writing
With the pen of our willing,
Dancing free over the pages
Of the book of our lives,
We’re our own legacy.

Cause’ the amazing feeling,
Letting yourself falling in grace,
Knowing the arms of your love
Are there to hold you firm,
And never let go of this bliss.

This is our witness,
The triumph of our smile.
The achievement of our kiss,
To the touch of our palms,
Our hands together
In a grateful prayer of love.

Book of love

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.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

“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.

Hush… #amwriting

Greetings Everyone! 🙂

I’m just here to share a picture that my mom found on the internet and she sent it to me.
This is how I look when I’am seated on the floor of my room to write…. lol.
Somehow I just can’t stay still when I write and, yes, sometimes I end up myself on the floor.

Well, as you can see… I’am very concentrated!

Cat with a keyboard

Have an amazing week and happy writing!

Sincerely,
Me.

Books Are Magic

Flying Books

Greetings everyone!

Today I feel the need to share with you why “books are magic”… So I found such amazing quotes.

Enjoy!

“Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
― Neil Gaiman, Coraline

“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
― Jorge Luis Borges

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.”
― Oscar Wilde

“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
― Madeleine L’Engle

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though.”
― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”
― Stephen King, On Writing

“I cannot live without books.”
― Thomas Jefferson

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
― Augustine of Hippo

“Books should go where they will be most appreciated, and not sit unread, gathering dust on a forgotten shelf, don’t you agree?”
― Christopher Paolini

“My Best Friend is a person who will give me a book I have not read.”
― Abraham Lincoln

“If you take a book with you on a journey,” Mo had said when he put the first one in her box, “an odd thing happens: The book begins collecting your memories. And forever after you have only to open that book to be back where you first read it. It will all come into your mind with the very first words: the sights you saw in that place, what it smelled like, the ice cream you ate while you were reading it… yes, books are like flypaper—memories cling to the printed page better than anything else.”
― Cornelia Funke, Inkheart

“I don’t believe in the kind of magic in my books. But I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.”
― J.K. Rowling

“Everything in the world exists in order to end up as a book.”
― Stéphane Mallarmé

“Books are the treasured wealth of the world and the fit inheritance of generations and nations.”
― Henry David Thoreau, Walden

“Sleep is good, he said, And books are better.”
― George R.R. Martin

“He was the crazy one who had painted himself black and defeated the world.

She was the book thief without the words.

Trust me, though, the words were on their way, and when they arrived, Liesel would hold them in her hands like the clouds, and she would wring them out like rain.”
― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

“A book is a gift you can open again and again.”
― Garrison Keillor

Diana.

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. 🙂
