A Knowing (poem)

What are Daily Disarrays
but disengaged rays
from the sun that have
accidentally found themselves
in a San Andreas Fault
within the troughs
of the missing heart?

What’s a Missing Heart but a mass
of blood and veins drumming to
the melodic singing-voice of the soul
as loud as audibly possible
so it can be heard
when you deem Mind
your primary ambassador.
May as well call Heart’s
yearnings adversaries.

What’s an Adversary but a reversed
reflection of you that is in dire need
of a passion compass or North Star
to guide him/her back to Truth?

What’s Truth but an adage that takes
advantage of the Fool that thinks
she/he knows all truths
there are to know.

What’s Knowing but a blowing wind—
There, but unseen. There, but the most
keen on rustling your fallen leaves
to wake you up

to the blooming cherry blossom tree
in the flesh (with no physical roots)
that you always were!

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.
