10 Line Tuesday poems every week with Maya Stein.
I just love Maya’s poems. They say so much with so little words. A great lesson in communication in our overly wordy world.

Hold me close and let me go
By Guest Blogger Maya Stein

Confession: the room sometimes too cold, sometimes a furnace. One day woozy with the spell of love and another, itchy with escape. You wish you had a crystal ball, knew when the kiss would tumble off the cliff and into the churning river that carried it away. You wish you could anticipate each change, large or incremental, that shifted your heart to the right or left of its blushing bull’s-eye. All you know is, the see-saw tips from transient to transcendental, the fulcrum leaning from the breeze. You don’t know how or why, but then again, nature’s full of paradox, stormy followed by serene. The winter grass, frozen shut, still clinging to a trace of green.

  • Video will more than double your conversion rates.
  • Video need not be expensive or terribly time-consuming.

  • Video can make you irresistible, as long as you know the ropes.
  • Video is the least expensive way to transform your message into a full-fledged brand.
