Treatise on Thich Nhat Hanh

Wuji Seshat


Sometimes your joy is the source
Of your smile, sometimes your smile
Is the source of your joy, do not be

Too modest, or too frugal –
Walk as if you are kissing the Earth
With your feet, touch the body of

The world with your hands
As if you were a newborn child
Sometimes your suffering becomes

The familiar territory you cling to
But do not fear the unknown, it is
The place where experience hunts you

And by hunting what is new, you are reborn
Because you are alive, everything is possible
Smile, breathe and go slowly

Watch everything for little miracles
Wake up in the morning, and smile
Plant seeds of joy for each day

Your actions are your only belongings
So drink your tea slowly and reverently
Without rushing towards the future
For your life has to be your message.

Evy Zen (formerly Eva PoeteX) is a mystic poetess, eclectic artist, fiction writer, and wellness advocate who calls the Greater Cleveland area home sweet home. 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." Furthermore, she works as a full-time freelance writer and editor. In 2012, Evy received a Bachelor of Arts degree (honors) in Creative Writing from Cleveland State University. 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.
