A Moment in Time – Author D.B. Hall

Take me to those hallowed hills
Let me breathe the holy air
Let me bathe in pure water
Let the scent of pines
Fragrance my body
Let my feet travel
The paths my ancestors trod
Let my spirit be cleansed
Let me be whole
Let my fingers feel
The earth, the dirt
The grit, the ant, the worm
Let my feet be grounded
In the basics of life and hard work
Let me see the eagle soar
In the cerulean sky
Splitting the gossamer clouds
Let me see the butterfly
Lite on bended blade of grass
Rising and falling gently
With the slight mountain breeze
That traverses the gaps
To prickle my naked torso.
Let me stand in the purity of nature
As was intended
In body
In spirit
In mind
Let me transcend
The impurities of mankind
At least for this moment in time

Pebbles in the Stream

Excerpt from the book “Pebbles in the Stream”


D.B. HallDavid 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.
