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).

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. I read the title, and first few lines, and immediately the song below came to mind. By the time I finished reading it (it’s lovely by the way), I was even more reminded of it. Your awesome poem seems like a squeal to the song 🙂 Great poem Eva!

    “Pachuca Sunrise”
    by Minus The Bear

    Midnight on a beach on the Mediterranean
    And I miss you
    Even here, taking it all in
    The sand, silvered, carries the moon
    On its shoulders
    Is it possible to put this night to tune
    And move it to you?

    Don’t cry, I’ll bring this home to you
    If I can make this night light enough to move

    Cargo ships move by
    Tracking on the horizon line
    There’s a luster from the city lights
    On the waves that kiss our feet
    And we’re thinking of going in
    The times getting thin

    This is a city for not sleeping
    And the clocks are set by feel
    At those moment from where I sit
    None of it seems real


    1. I have adored this song for quite a while! Surprisingly, I didn’t have it in mind while writing this, but I totally see the connection you have made here: Brilliant! Thank you for the thoughtful comment. 🙂


I value your thoughts. :)
