Thank you, Jonathan!

I have shared
land and sky
with you.
I have tasted
blood and honey.
My witch-oil turned
to dragon-fire
at your touch…

Soft fingers laid asleep
until your turmoil
woke them
for so long…

It feels like getting drunk
on old reddish wine
long softened
during times of
War
Equanimity
and
Comets.
What shall I pour in your glass?
Molten flowers
Golden ink
Lucid light
Unicorn mirth…

I dig your veins
for gold.
I find pure
bitter-sweet
amber nuggets.

I fear any story
whose ink
my words
can’t drink…
Yet I drip in yours
ever since.

When your arms call
and your lips
read all my feral kisses
How can there be no heaven?

Knowing

“To know another human being in their essence, you don’t really need to know anything about them – their past, their history, their story. We confuse knowing about with a deeper knowing that is non-conceptual. Knowing about and knowing are totally different modalities. One is concerned with form, the other with the formless. One operates through thought, the other through stillness.”
Eckhart Tolle

Are you a rebel writer?

“When a man is in doubt about this or that in his writing, it will often guide him if he asks himself how it will tell a hundred years hence.” – Samuel Butler coined the writing-in-rebellion term perfectly.

Almost two hundred years later, I would like to be a student at the Colleges of Unreason from Erewhon and apply for the study of hypothetics. To learn just to watch and notice and to “quiet my cleverness” to see the world with eyes wide open.

The science of hypothetics resides above us in a not-so-mythical nebula that hosts all of the marvelous things awaiting to be discovered, invented or written.

Keep it simple
Look at any concept or idea with baby eyes, allow your mind to travel and unravel more with the help of senses, not reason. The question to ask yourself is: ” How can you explain it to a seven-year-old?” And this is how you write it.

Do your due diligence
Prepare to become a miner for words. Imagine you are the keeper of a wordmine. It has secret galleries and dangerous passageways. You have to know what you are writing about so be prepared for a thorough research. We need to drill and excavate and blast through a huge amount of rock before we find a vein of gold. Research the industry, harvest the short tail and long tail keywords you wish to perform for your articles and SEO writing.

Write in your readers’ secret alphabet
I am in love with secret alphabets, this love especially shines in my poems and gives me happiness and freedom. Writing is a ladder to exploring new worlds and the nebula full of secret alphabets eager to be deciphered in order to invent new things and write new stories.

Don’t use weasel words
Start with the truest sentences that you know. Writers are the luckiest as new stories and new businesses bear the mark of their creativity and innovation.
At the first meeting with a copywriting client I keep in mind that people are stories on two legs, my job is to convince them to share their story or give me hints to start with. Beneath every business there is a real life story of passion and strive.

And last but not the least always keep in mind to:
“Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.” – Kurt Vonnegut

After gathering info, you are allowed to choose the most penetrating and exquisite words ever. The tall tale is yours … and ours.
“Beyond the age of information is the age of choices.” – Charles Eames
