This Road Of Mine – Poem

This Road Of Mine – 

By Diana Arco

Guidance from the heart,

Mind, and soul.

I take all the notes

That I burn with inspiration,

I challenge with passion,

And I walk with love

This road of mine.

If I see you somewhere

And I have a good feeling,

I’d like to take your hand

And from our roads

Make our friendship.

If I see you somewhere

And I see you in pain,

I’d like to hold you dear

To let you know

The sun will meet us

Gladly to embrace us next day.

If I see you somewhere

And you steal my heart

And you become

The owner of my love,

Then our roads will be one

Where we’ll mix with our passion

All our aspirations and goals.

Oh, this road of mine,

How grateful I’am,

Truly and with all my being,

During my walks

For all the treasures

I’ve been able to find,

Some I collect,

Others I let go,

But my dearest knowledge

Will always be within me

No matter I go.

The journey of my first manuscript. Sharing the experience!

manuscript

Greetings, everyone!

Well, like my father told me some time ago. If you are afraid, why don’t you stay under the bed and live your life from there? and I went…”Oh, oh, oh!” “That’s rude, dad!”
Then he said, firm and kind: “When you really wish something in your life, you just go for it.”

Dad came up with the following words that really made an impact in my life: If you want to be an astronaut, what are you going to do? Of course, send a letter to the NASA. And what the NASA is going to answer to you? – if you get an answer in first place. You have 3 options in here… you could receive a “No” or “Thank you for your interest, maybe we’ll get in contact with you later.” or “Welcome! Congratulations! You’ve been accepted to participate in our project” My Dad uses the astronaut’s example because they are the ones who, literary speaking and technologically achieved, have been able to travel beyond the earth.

So, I received and understood this knowledge, and I said… “My astronaut is to be a writer! and I’m going for it!”
It took me some weeks to make up my mind and choose “my tale” from all those ideas I’ve been writing for years in pieces of paper and in my journals. It’s my first shout, my introduction letter, my #1, my unborn baby inside my belly… the doubt got inside my head, the fear to be judged too… I really got confused. But I took a deep breath, and I said to myself “No worries, I free myself from them, and I’m going to enjoy this process… my own writing process.” I chose what my own inspiration, love, and feelings asked me to. So, it took me months to write my first draft, then it took me some other time to edit it. I spend days and nights in my room and in my favorite restaurants, writing, creating, describing, placing and deleting words. Enjoying, excited, the process of making my dream come true. Then finally I had my manuscript ready “The Composer and The Flycatcher” my fantasy tale written in poetry prose. “It’s time to find a home to my tale – my first manuscript.” I said with hope, knowing how competitive it’s the field of the writing world.
What came next? I’ve experienced “rejections” from publishers and agents… Oh My! Should I go under the bed now? -I asked to myself. Of course not! Don’t you dare to quit now, you’re just starting! And then, finally, I was able to find my other half, my publisher.
I thought to say to my father “Dad, The NASA has accepted me and I’m going to sign the contract.” “I’m going to the moon!” lol, but no… Me and my family celebrated at home that night with wine, cheese, and bread.

Miss Quesinberry, you’re such an amazing lady who gave me the welcome into your publishing house. I’m so grateful with you for believing in my talent, in what I wrote… my first manuscript, my poetry, my fantasy tale. http://www.prlog.org/12144423-donnaink-publications-signs-author-diana-arco-and-her-title-the-composer-and-the-flycatcher.html My home!

So, the journey continues… I’m coming back later as I continue living my writer’s experience.

Sincerely,
Diana.

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.” ❤

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. 🙂
