The Moon

“I’ll be looking at the moon, but I’ll be seeing you.” – Michael Ondaatje

In the evening
with my eyelashes
I kill all the events of the day
I choke perceptions and
reveries green
That could be real
Pending dream.

In the evening
with my fingers
I spin yarns
For your sweet bedlams…

Greens

We write
for love
and be loved.

And to feel
the exodus
of the shadows
in the glimmer
of tomorrow.

If my soul were a colour
it would be green.
Green has plundered
my everything
like barbarians
distant shores.

My eyes are also charmed
with the green
they pick up
from the sun…*

“Nothing is more important than summer”
and its green offerings on the altar of love…

*In the absence of the sun, my eyes are brown.

Every Day a Little Dream

I long for a dream,
within a dream
that clears the sight
of you.

I am asleep and asleep
I feel nothing
But the cradle of your arms
like orange snakes
thrashing fears around…

Black and white tale
Shall that be…

Every night a little dream
in the dead of sleep
in the depth of you…
………………………………..
Words spatter lights
in pools.
Do not squander their yellow glare
To guard you through winter…

A Shark Tale

“Back in the days when storytelling was the main form of entertainment, tales of mythical creatures abounded. Today we seem to indulge in the mere scraps of what was once an epic feast of legend.”

In this modern age, there appears another mythical creature, the shark, a protean-like coiling in the grass type of snake, ready to turn your business proceedings and agreements into dust with swift smooth-tongued, loaded Questions…

As an entrepreneur I have started small. I am still small fish and I deal with sharks, corporate companies. I have created my ‘corporate’ culture from scratch, and I have developed my business solely through growth hacking.
What I have learned when trying to impose my imaginative but new small company culture to the sophisticated corporates is to strike gold, provided you know who you are and consequently, the “protocol” to offer and create huge amounts of Value and solve problems. The more problems you solve, the better you speak the shark tongue.

Tim Ferriss once said, “A person’s success in life can usually be measured by the number of uncomfortable conversations he or she is willing to have.”

Sharks’ words are never comfortable as they know no mercy and smell fear and disorder from afar. Whomever has never been told that his/her products or services are useless doesn’t know how to shine a carefully chosen smile in the face of the creature with disposable teeth, and sink into the right order of things. Which is there are other sharks. But when a big shark says to you, “you are no good”, then you are (good), because you are there sharing the same table, conference room and presentation… On this gleeful occasion I am thanking all the sharks in my life, the ones who have taught me to smile at the glint of rejection, and the ones who have taught me that:

“Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” – Jack Canfield

Moon Fair

You are a fair
moon-ray
stinging my eyeballs
whilst I wait
for Mercury to fall
the Titans to cry
and tilting shadows
to moor over
conversing stars
impatient to die
and reborn a thousand times.

Friend or foe?

Garcia Marquez wrote: “The worst enemy of politicians is a writer.”

I am “two in one”, writer and politician, so what does that make me?
Thanks to my dual nature, I can hide underneath the skin of a writer and shapeshift whenever necessary.
Politicians are no writers because writers write about the truth of their existence or others’. Everything a writer imagines is a form of reality lived in a different world.
In order to survive, you must carry no weight of feeling in the crooked factuality of politics.

As
“A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanged, it is the skin of a living thought, and can vary greatly in colour and content depending on the context in which it is used.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.

And
I miss the good old times when I used to find peace in front of a blank white paper. Presently I am searching for the remains of that feeling.
I always write my feelings on paper, then I type them. Encasing my words first in arranged and perfect letters seems a sacrilege for me.

I illustrate with this painting because this is where I usually live. My world is always at dusk, as this is the golden hour of the day.
Luigi Russolo – Nocturne Landscape

To Be in Love

The Sea is a fickle lover
One day sweet as
honey dew
The other bitter
like sin…
that makes you
fall harder
as if hit
by a ton of bricks
made of water glass
Sincerity.

It loves you back
with ardor
You have been dissolved…
Both limbs and heart
know no more
than
liquid love
that once was only
words…
