Riley welch is a poet from texas living in Denver. She posts three original poems a week. 


A hat flew away carried by a heavy breeze.
Because wind
has to be moving 11 miles per hour
just to lift a grain.
Soft and delicate crystals
of sand
off a beach.
So maybe
more than a breeze,
it was a gust
that took the hat from it's owner,
and let it face the world
without a body
roaming beneath it.
