Week 5- Ashley Davene

Posted: May 2, 2011 in Ashley Davene, Week 05

I have been through a whirl wind of experience and emotion lately- tied to nothing, floating like a feather, – this poem is a peice that is inspired from a place of grounded stillness – from a heart that finds itself renewed- settled, and ready for all that life has to offer- can we all remember a moment where we savored the beauty, bounty, and calm of our world. Satisfied

Brick by Brick

Brick by brick they’re stacked

Layers of mud and brick and oyster

Building firm walls and cupboards

To house trinkets and love affairs

They’ve had

Lining the walls with smiling faces

Colors and momentary majesty

Draped fabrics and soft cushions

Invite you to nibble on chocolate wafers

To sip hot tea and magic in

The scent of sage smoke billows

And a pipe is full of freshness

You draw it in and savor

The light dances upon the


You exhaled satisfied

With the way you have stacked

Your world
