a lens to see behind the sky by ashley dun


This collection of poetry and art walks through earth’s elements, reminding you of the connection of spirit and sky, earth and bone. Dun uses words inspired by Fire, Wind, Earth, and Water to wrestle the enemies of existence brought on by anxiety and depression. Although there is darkness in some of these words, behind it is a hope for light. Beneath it is a heavy, beating heart holding on through the storm. Use this book as your reminder that the storm will always pass. Light is always on the other side.

Secrets of a Broken Heart

If you're a dreamer, there is no doubt you have had your heart broken a few times, whether it was by the people you loved or by your own thoughts. 'Secrets of a Broken Heart' is a poetry collection to carry you through the heartbreak. It tells a story of healing, of how nothing matters more than to just keep dreaming no matter how much it hurts at times.

Smoke Signals (Burn This)

*CLOSEOUT ITEM* Available while inventory lasts

By Ashley Dun

*Now featured in A Lens To See Behind The Sky*

This is a chronicle of life, seasons, heartbreak, and healing.

Poems to make you feel less alone, loved, understood.

The light fades and sometimes seems so far away, but spring will always come. The sun is always just behind the clouds. We hold on together and these words create the rope that can lift us out of the hole that so easily catches us. Grab on.

Let it lift you.
