Stream of Consciousness Floetry #1

These words… They’re riverflowin’,

That vishuddha1, anja2 glowin’ like it’s nobody’s business.

Get this: My shadow’s restless, but all it needs to do is regret less,

Become an egret and coast from west to The East,

Meet those Zen gurus and fall at their feet,

Pray and praise till the shadow descends,

decays like the locust skin, skimpy and frayed.

Like a boomerang, come back to those roots,

Kick off those combat boots,

and dive deep like lotus roots in the mud.

I’m no Elmer Fudd3

No, I’m not hunting rabbits,

but The Truth… I gotta have it.

So down the rabbit hole I go to meet Alice

In Chains4, and with the magick tea set her free.

Enter divinity.

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.
