About the Author
Praise for We Have Always Been The Universe
"In A. M. Davis’ poems we open to realities both immediate and cosmic. Her eye can see a neighborhood’s soul flicker and flow down the generations. Her voice carries a rare, spare honesty that goes straight to the bloodstream. Her words, truer in their tempo than our haste and hustle, are telling us we’re home. .
Joanna Macy, Author, Coming Back to Life.
"I am that ceaseless thing. /Little quakes/ on the surface/ and beneath/ the water." A. M. Davis' We Have Always Been The Universe is a collection of poems that spring forth from an immense creativity that has been harnessed in vital restraint in order to take her readers on a step-by-step journey.
Precisely observed, using spare and lyrical language, these poems evoke the "little quakes" of everyday spiritual insights that resonate according to a cosmic pattern.
A meditation practitioner who lives in Oakland, California, A. M. Davis has created a volume of poetry that, like Emily Dickinson's poems, find the cosmos dwelling within her neighborhood gardens:
"And I have learned to take my liberation in drunken swigs/ I have taken it in both hands and poured it over me... for I have seen the crazy mad/ impossibility of flight/ on wings of the bumblebee in clover".
