Very facinating and creative! I felt the quiet pain and the relief as it was turned to creating beauty.
Very lovely. Thank you for writing this.
I had to read that first stanza again and again; you packed so much feeling into so few words that it's a whole poem in itself. I like all the sounds you used in this poem to create the feelings.
Beauty from pain -you've documented the process magnificently.
Beautiful, deep, profound.
This stanza in particular
"A single, paltry, minute dot
Appears upon the page.
Then more, some sparse, but others dense, Find places on this stage."

Reminded me of something I once read regarding an artist - he does not become an artist until he makes that first stroke upon an empty page. Great job!

Emotion is expressed beautifully in your poem.
I'm printing this out and framing it - I'll hang it right next to that Mt. St. Helens picture...

Thank you for the "Story Behind Your Mountain."
