The Pinnacle #poetry


 

petals in the snow

It was at this peak

for the first time

I found love

cool, crisp were your lines

my first solo climb

off the precipice

I jumped

into empty lies

carving into moguls

some shallow some deep

rose petals in the  powder

you could hear the beat

the foolish heart

seeks for occupation

breaking my leg

pain not soon forgotten

strength has all but failed

for my encore traverse

the pinnacle breached

life’s fall rehearsed

***

final blueprints

plans fall into place others fail

on a pinnacle

 

Poet’s United prompt is Mountain.  My  cryptic symbols reflect life on the end of a Pinnacle.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. A poor dress rehearsal often means a great opening night. The wonder is that you returned to that pinnacle at all, not that the planned leap worked. Bravo!

  2. The pinnacle of knowing shines through in this poem – life is climbs and falls..but always somehow we move on..and hopefully forward..i love the concise language adding to the certainty and ‘rose petals in the powder’ – what could be better
