History – Author D.B. Hall

The history of this place
is written in the dash
between the dates
etched in weathered headstones.

It is often read
by simply watching
the tender touch
of loving family
as their fingertips
caress the remembered lives
and carry kisses
from lips to marbled names.

It is displayed
among the ancestral plots
sectioned off
in stone and iron
announced in gravity with arches
pedestal and plaques
all under the shade of ancient oaks.

It is felt here
in the spirits
that move through
and rustle the changing leaves
they seem to cool the tear soaked face
while soothing wistful hearts
of ones that some day
will add to the history of this place.

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.
