About the Author
David Hall was born in a small town called Mount Airy (A.K.A Mayberry) nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains which are part of the large Appalachian Mountain chain. His early life involved a lot of traveling with his missionary parents, which involved stints of living in Mexico and Bolivia. His poetry reflects a love for nature and life mixed with a sense of the rustic Americana spirit and sprinkled with a lingering sense of the spiritual guidance infused by his southern religious upbringing. David has always been able to live in the moment enjoying it to the fullest while being able to be separated within himself seeking something more. Poetry is one of those outlets that gives him that something more. The diversity of genres and endless array of topics allow him to dive into poetry with reckless abandon or with fine-tuned precision; whichever is needed. Like a prism there are many sides of David, from the emotional connections when dealing with death, to the touch of the spring breeze on your neck hairs, David’s poetry can put you there.
Preface . . .
I don’t know about you, but my focus is easily lost when I am reading something that is buried in an over-abundance of large words. It is nice to increase one’s vocabulary and learn new words. I am all for incorporating those into poetry, just not all into the same line or sentence. In this book, Pebbles in the Stream, I have tried to provide a mix of poetry styles discussing various topics but swirling around a gentle theme of nature that I believe is both easy and pleasant to read as well as relatable for people living everyday life. Pebbles in the Stream is a varied collection of personal poems that highlight a deep connection with nature and love. If you have ever reached into the crisp coolness of a clear mountain stream to pick up a pebble, felt a deep sense of family, or have fallen deeply in love, those are the sensations that I hope you experience through the readings of these humble writings.
