Fantasy and Poetry + Autumn Haiku

Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time rigorously working on my upcoming novel, so I’ve had little-to-no time to write poetry. However, there’s something so poetic about the fantasy genre itself, that I don’t feel like I’ve actually taken a break.

Now that I’ve been running a second blog, I may not be on here as often, but that doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten about any of you. I will try my very best to still visit your blogs and immerse myself in your beautiful poetry, stories, art, photos, and everything in between.

You’ve all been so supportive of my writing and artworka lot of you since the birth of this blog back in 2012 (or was it 2011? I forget), and I couldn’t be any more grateful. As creators of various thingsbe it paintings, haiku, or catchy tunes, we all need to stick together and encourage one another. Speaking of haiku, here’s one:

Look up at the trees,
King Midas touched a few leaves,
Autumn’s approaching.

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.
