Writer Highlight Featuring: David Hall


Straw Hat

Shattered and destroyed
she stumbled across
the endless fields
of oozing mud
with long limber grasses
by gusting winds
and pelting rain.

She clutched
her thin aching body tightly
with bruised trembling arms
that tried to protect her
from the weather
and the demons
that ravaged her from within.

Her eyes were closed
under a quickly snatched straw hat
as she blindly stumbled forward
trying to block out
the horror of trust destroyed
innocence lost.

Home lay ahead
but no place
would ever be
a safe haven again.
