Oh, [insert lover’s name here] what would I do without you?

In this case mi amor isn’t even a person. My love is an art. An art that is fueled by alliterative words and metaphorical tongue. Honestly, what would I do without you, Poetry? Perhaps it is a little sad that I am referring to poetry as if it were a person. It may as well be.

I know for a fact that without my poetic creativity, my passion for life as I know it would fall by the wayside. I’m sure anyone with a passion that fuels them would agree. I mean, there’s always art and music. Truth is, I have a place in my heart for all the arts, but Poetry is just one of those things. It brought me out of a very dark place, as I’m sure many other fellow artists can relate. I went from an apathetic person unknowing of my purpose, to an extremely happy individual that appreciates everything in her life (both good and bad). It’s funny what picking up a pen, a paintbrush — even a crayon can do to one’s life. I know it’s a bit over-dramatic to say I underwent a transformation, but I did. The moment I became more poetic, I became more in tune with myself. Becoming united (or depending on your beliefs REunited) with one’s calling is a ground-breaking (need I say transcendental) experience within itself. No wonder why I am a mystic… and no wonder why The Beatles were mystics (for those of you who don’t know, they are my favorite band). I guess my point is that life is given a new dimension of meaning when one finds who or what they truly love. I can only imagine if I find both. But for now, I am perfectly content with the way things are. πŸ™‚

Born a Clevelander with a Greek lineage, the arts started being a major part of her life the moment she picked up her first crayon. To date, dozens of Evy's writings have been featured in publications like Thought Catalog, The Journey Magazine, and Journey of the Heart: Women's Spiritual Poetry. As a spoken word poet, she has also had the opportunity to collaborate with numerous musicians across the globe. Currently, Evy is the Founding Editor of Poehemian Press and runs the decade-young poetry website (formerly The Artistic Muse). Additionally, she is the author of several independently and locally published poetry books, including "Esoterra" and "Sacred Shapes."

She also obtained a Diploma (distinction) in Exercise Nutrition from Shaw Academy four years later. When she's not creating, Evy Zen recharges her batteries by reading her weight in books ("The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho is her personal favorite), going on epic bike rides, meditating to ambient music, and racing super cars behind the safety of her computer or TV screen.

    1. This is an old private post that I just changed to “public.” I had no idea it would show up in the reader, lol.

      Anyway. Yes, passions are indeed very healing and transformative. πŸ™‚
