Cloud9Dancers ☁ (poem excerpt)

we danced on cloud nine’s curve last night
in the middle of the near-clear sky, crescent
moonshine peering though the circular
negative space, giving ivory illume to our
faces with a hint of golden; – and in that
moment, as I relive it this morning, it felt
that heaven we’ve somehow stolen
and re-created our own version in
form of slow, sensual dance.

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. Great poem Eva! Reminds me of my haiku-set below via

    “Husband & Wife On Cloud 9”
    by Ry Hakari

    Mishaps? I see shapes
    not mistakes, of potential
    for remodeling

    And you used to, too
    I learned to see, watching you
    watching me, watch you

    Now it’s you learning
    from me to see you clearly
    as I still do now

    So obviously
    we need each other to help
    us see ourselves right

    The strands of my hair
    you make stand on end, turn white
    ’cause you get to me

    ‘Cause no one else could
    stir my heart’s anger in love
    Makes me want to stay!

    Never run away!
    You only scare away fear
    I’m here—so are you

    Listening to these
    Wedding vows to follow you
    through hell, back again

    Because around you
    I feel I am in heaven
    so of course—I do!
