I think I have fallen in love the Palindrome poem. I have been fiddling with them since Philly Dreamer gave us the challenge to write one. I noticed that some of our friends didn’t quiet understand the process, so I am going to explain as I go. Everyone should love creating this type of poetry. It’s so much fun to do. The lines go first to last, then last to first. Using the very same lines with no variations. The following Palindrome is one I jotted down last night.
I wish I had a piece of pie (This is the first line and also your last line.)
A piece of pie would rate so high (This is the second line and also second to last line.)
Coconut or lemon cream (This is the third line and also third from last line.)
Mama must be passing by (This is the fourth line and also fourth from the last line.)
I can smell that piece of pie ( This is the fifth line and also fifth from the last line.)
Mama made them oh so nice (This is the sixth line and also sixth from the last line.)
I can almost feel her nigh (This line repeats in the next line.)
I can almost feel her nigh ( These two lines are not used again.)
Mama made them oh so nice
I can smell that piece of pie
Mama must be passing by
Coconut or lemon cream
A piece of pie would rate so high
I wish I had a piece of pie.
You can make your poem as long or short as you wish. Always repeat the two lines in the middle of the poem and continue. I hope you have as much fun with Palindrome poems as I do. Palindromes have revived my interest in poetry. I have always enjoyed poetry and I don’t have an idea of how many poems I have created. Since I’ve published on Triond I have let my creative writing slip. Mainly because my poetry doesn’t earn as much as informational articles do. Anyway, I find I still love it, so don’t be surprised if I publish more poetry.
