Thank you for the honor featuring my poetry and sharing it with the International community. I am grateful to be included and to be an inspiration to others.  I enjoyed my time in Canada at the World Poetry International Festival and was truly honored by the Empowered Poet Award. At this time I am writing my fifth poetry book and working on a novel. I am a student inthe Online Writer’s Studio at Stanford University’s Continuing Studies, which offers dynamic courses in every genre, also hosts the Certificate Program in Novel Writing. The Certificate Program builds on the success and excellent teaching of their regular Online Writing courses with the goal of providing a structured environment in which to write a novel. I hope to release my fifth poetry book in November of 2012 or sooner. I look forward to returning to Canada for more events and sharing the inspiration of poetry worldwide to create more peace and joy!

Blessings,   Zayra http://www.zayrayves.com

Drowned Cathedral from Sleep in the Sea Tonight With Me.

At last we are free from the rock we had chained our love to
We swim empty between there and somewhere
under the transparent sky no longer bound by the laments of dying.

We are flesh that is torn beyond the language of lyrics
past the art of mystery and into the caves of the heart as light is turned inside out.

We are the miracle that exists in ten thousand grains of sand
in the seaweed of saints and lovers submerged covered in barnacles.

In a drowned cathedral we have found each other again curled in the shell of life.

WP Peace Book cover by Jaypee.

Award Winning Photographer Jaypee Belarmino, New Zealand and  the Philippines

“I chose a child holding a globe for our upcoming World Poetry Peace Anthology cover. It signifies our theme that indeed, Peace is a step closer because it is now just a generation away. Mahatma Gandhi once said, “If we are to teach real peace in this world, we shall have to begin with children.”  I believe that by teaching these children effectively, one new generation coming is enough to achieve real peace.  The child holding the globe signifies that if we could inspire our children, then through them, peace in the entire world could be achieved, enabling them to understand what it means to celebrate life. Peace – a step closer. Peace – a generation away!”
