Hello and thanks for stoping by my poetry page. I’ve been writing poetry since I was a teenager in Brazil. Without boundaries or guidelines just being still and letting the inner voice come through me, it has been not only therapeutic and healing but necessary in my existence. I hope that you, the reader, find it inspirational and provoking for an action of change. A change based on taking full responsibility in living and by doing so we can be free to listen to that inner voice and go on chasing our dreams.

THE TRANSFORMATION

OF A

CAT INTO A LION 

  is a collection of poems and quotes that I wrote  between 2012 and 2018 based on experiences and feelings lived on my journey into becoming a solo loop artist as a harmonica player. Through this time frame I bought a sailboat to live in and prepared for my first Solo tour, the “Lion Harp Cross Country Tour” where I lived in a van and crossed 29 states in the US playing music in the streets. To its final pages where I close the book to leave on my next adventure, a European Busking Tour.

Much love from the Lion.

A Poem from the Book:

“ART”

 

ON THE FLOAT OF THE BOAT

 

I'll sip the red wine and hit the pipe

I'll let my rhythm fly tight

I feel inside what needs to go outside

I'll sing a song

Only because this is home

Where in my own dome

I'm never alone

The music that sings in my ears

Is what my heart fears

But my soul gives me tears

So I fight through knives and spears

Only you can defeat you

Only you can crown you

Only you can be you

So be no fool

And live true

Powered by the wind

The ship cuts through

The sails are wings

Steering directions is possible

To have control on time is impossible

So I chose to fly above

To rip my skin apart

I won’t stop until I rock

In the name of Art.
