Guide Lines


Guide Lines
 
 
Lead with the gut shot --
Cruel, hard -- survivable
but never forgotten.
Carry through with simple,
solid strategy,
a call to action
heart to heart.
Now, we engage the mind.
Select memory with care.
Fully develop narrative imagery.
Weave a side door into the neural
web, opening paths to vistas,
euphoric explorations,
free at last.
 
First pain
then salve and preparation
then imagination
Our Universe expands

Very cool, Libra. I love the first three lines -- hit the gut indeed.
quote:

Survivable -- yikes.

Also dig how you subtly remind your reader that memories are selected, and not to be taken for granted.

Love the imperative tense throughout -- well, almost throughout. You leave it at the end.

I hope we can follow your guidelines to healing the world. Who's going to pull the trigger?

Re: Guide Lines


I can go with your guide lines. All our guides keep a little in front and maybe to the side.

Re: Guide Lines


hey libra,

so instead of writing being an axe for the frozen sea within in us (kafka), you envision it as a shot gun blast, albeit one which is survivable. but that's only step one. the attention grabber. lol now that i've wounded you, here let me help. a little tlc and strategy. then let the imagination roam free. of course, the way you said it, it sounds a lot better! thanks for posting your ars poetica, libra.
