Change (poem) 🍁 β˜ƒ β˜‚ β˜€

always showing me
that change is as inevitable
as falling
in love
with everything
the sun touches
and doesn’t.

granting me a white sheet
to re-write my story.

adding colored ink
to my pages,
I undergo catharsis
in your April showers.

the sauna that rids
me of my toxins,
preparing me
for the inevitable
changes to come.

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."

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. Eva,

    Would you mind if I shared this on my blog, giving you full credit and links back to the original source? I suffer from SAD very much in cold dark Irish winters. My late father always said that “Fall” described the regression of the year’s progress.

    Hope sharing ur work is ok, Eva x?



I value your thoughts. :)
