Invincible
_________
The vanguard reason
she wears her shield everyday
is because nobody
ever took the time
to inquire about
what wounded her so deeply
that she needed to carry her shield
in the first place,
so she never learned
what life would be like
without letting go of pain,
without learning to live
without her shield.
In reality,
she is invincible.

The Dream Catcher

Sauntering salaciously
through the ethereal world,
she dives courageously
towards her deepest darkest dreams
in spellbinding rumination of the unknown
pondering the luscious landscape of the mind,
simultaneously whispering
insomniac temptations
tantalizingly towards me
casting a web of intellectual deviltry
that dominates my dreams delectably
to such a resoundingly invigorating extent
that it makes my entire life
an endless living dream.

Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All Book Release Update | #Love #Poetry #Prose #WritingCommunity

Just recently, I received my proof copy for the latest book I am soon to release, though admittedly under my Zy Marquiez pen name, it being Amor Vincit Omnia – Love Conquers All.

The above picture shows what the softcover book looks like. A quick note on that though, that ‘smudgy’ looking portion on the left of the white heart is just a glare. That said, the pinkish hearts that interlock do however look exactly as you see them. Just wanted to make sure people knew how it looked.

Now, the tentative plan is for me to start proof reading this copy today, and hopefully have the proof reading and additional Beta Feedback done so I can order another proof copy tomorrow, which should arrive mid next week. Given how important this book is to me, I simply don’t want to make this book available to public access without having had another go at the ‘final’ proof copy.

If all goes as planned, then the book should be available to the public by late next week.

You all have a great day.

Rejuvenating Perfection | #Poetry #Prose #Poems #Life

Gazing fondly at the stars
we dance with the shadows,
wrapped in a sphere of wonder
while we drink in the intoxicating
and rejuvenating perfection
of the celestial starlight.

The Fusion Of Writing & Life To Bring Depth To An Individual | #Life #Writing #WritingCommunity

“Life is too important to be taken seriously”
– Oscar Wilde

“All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make, the better.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life is experienced in a full kaleidoscope of circumstances that show the endless ways that it can be experienced.  How we choose to experience those circumstances will ultimately dictate what we get out of them, and how much meaning and depth will be had.

One of the vanguard reasons I love writing is because it allows for the exploration of life through the written medium, which showcases countless writing styles, but also because it allows you to examine meaningful circumstances at length, but more importantly, to record them as a time capsule of sorts for yourself, or for others.  Additionally, the wisdom garnered from many of the most astute individuals in the past still lives on, all due to their choice to pen their thoughts in timeless fashion.

This merger of an individual’s experience and creative process, brought about through writing, still resonates today.  Such instances not only allows individuals to learn from the past in myriad ways, but ultimately also aids individuals to live a better life, a wiser life, a more fulfilling life, all because those individuals took pen to paper and seared their voices into the pages of history after imprinting the insights they learned through the trials and tribulations they faced. 

That is incredible power, not only because words have the influence to change people’s lives as well as history in significant ways through their inherent resonance, but words add depth to life that at times can be looked upon time and again for those with appreciation of it, as is the baseline for these thoughts.

Don’t ever underestimate the power of writing, whether it is blogs, paper notes, letters, creative writing, poetry, fiction, short stories, and so on, to add depth to your life and those of others.  For just like a mindful and deep breath brings a moment of clarity, no matter how fleeting it may be, the act of writing can also bring clarity that can allow not only for the recording of meaningful circumstances that took place in an individual’s life, but this also allows for more incisive examination of meaning within the very fibers of life, the untold depths that often go unexplored not only in the moment, but later on. 

 Such circumstances while possibly seemingly insignificant at the time, might just echo through the end of time.
