Powders’ Peak

Sunrise by Javier Baño

Powders’ Peak

On Powders’ Peak
the Lost calls fall
mutely into the pit of Locks
thrumming through the moon-light

On Powders’ Peak
the ancient staff etched
ever faintly in stone
points to the dawn

Where the lost are found
persons are reconfigured  
and all answers are
written on soft petals falling
from Powders’ Peak



  1. Nice use of repetition, Pearl.

  2. I like how this piece seems to "roll" off the tongue.

  3. I'm on my way to Powders' Peak...!

  4. Pearl, you continue to weave your words into the finest fabric. I am warmed by its comfort. Thanks.

    1. Awwww Walt - thank you dear poetic friend - lovely lovely comment :) looking forward to playing at PAD if the RoboEditor doesn't slow us down! :)

    2. in re-reading this poem there seemed to be a redemptive tone to it - somehow echoing the day - do you agree?

  5. I like it, especially the last stanza. These lines really grab me: "Where the lost are found persons are reconfigured"

  6. This is so beautiful....

    I am here after SO long!! Sorry about that!!

    inside that bowl, I see the whole world

  7. Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wanted
    to say that I've really enjoyed browsing your blog posts.
    In any case I'll be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!

  8. Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking the
    time and actual effort to produce a great article… but what can I say… I hesitate
    a whole lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

  9. Excellent web site you have got here.. It's difficult to find quality writing like yours nowadays.
    I truly appreciate individuals like you! Take care!!

  10. Hurrah! At last I got a weblog from where I can actually obtain valuable data concerning my study
    and knowledge.

  11. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    website? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had
    issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a
    good platform.

  12. Excellent pieces. Keep writing such kind of information on your site.

    Im really impressed by your site.
    Hi there, You've performed a great job. I'll certainly digg
    it and for my part suggest to my friends. I'm confident they will be benefited from this web site.

  13. Everything is very open with a precise description of
    the challenges. It was definitely informative. Your site is very useful.
    Many thanks for sharing!
