INFORM POETS – PALINDROME

Since Hannah reads the same both forward and backward…

A palindrome, by definition, is a word, phrase, verse, sentence, or even poem that reads the same forward or backward. It stems from the Greek word palindromos: palin, meaning again, and dromos, meaning a running. Combining the two together, the Greek meaning gives us, running back again…

Shown below are examples of the word-unit palindrome. The carefully placed words form the same sentence, whether it is read forward or backward. For example, ‘Mirrored images reflect images mirrored’ which includes a word in the center as a reversal point for the sentence or even the poem.

WALT’S S’TLAW

AGREED

Truth.
Opinions offered,
given options, taken liberties.
Good for one, is good for another.
Slightly nodded, acknowledge approval,
assured, thoughts the same, conjoined spirits.
~Agreement~
spirits conjoined, same the thoughts. Assured.
Approval acknowledged, nodded slightly.
Another for good is, one for good.
Liberties taken, options given.
Offered opinions.
Truth.

HANNAH’S PALINDROME

CO-CREATING

Muse
Universe
Energetically flows,
ancient and archetypal-
collects inspiration…
fragments of light,
shards of shadow,
slipping images-
swirling together waiting;
hoping for spilling.
Swelling and surging
provoked breath,
finally poem
eventually paint and ink-
colors struggle and thrive;
heart and soul,
consciousness bloom.
Canvas of mind
co-creating
mind of canvas.
Bloom consciousness,
soul and heart
thrive and struggle colors-
ink and paint eventually,
poem finally…
breath provoked,
surging and swelling
spilling for hoping-
waiting together swirling;
images slipping,
shadow of shards-
light of fragments.
Inspiration collects,
archetypal and ancient-
flows energetically…
Universe
Muse
