Wither by D.B. Hall

I perch in pensive self-confinement

here atop the western bastion

surrounded by heavenly hues

of gold, orange and tangerine

they encompass me

another wasted glorious sunset

spent watching

feathered acrobats of the sky


their winged aerial feats.


No regretful tears

just a morbid dryness

about my eyes

that once looked out

across the desert for your return

now the arid emptiness

has slowly crept


encroaching upon my heart.


A heart that will shortly wither

into the sands of the desert

quickly to be joined

by the snipped red daisy

in my feeble hands.

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.

  1. I loved this the first time I read it. Loved it for the emotion it conveys and how the Poet can connect with his readers. I now own the book and am delighted with each and every offering it brings. D.B. Hall is obviously a Master Craftsman.
