Over at Shadow Poetry I found a Palindrome Poem (also called a mirrored poem). And I and going to combine my NaPoWriMo poem and my A to Z post about the letter "C" and write about coffee. I am rather fond of coffee, sometimes to me detriment. As once a fellow writer during 24 Hour Theatre wrote a show that mentioned my love of coffee as a running gag. Okay, I am not mean, but when your rehearsing your show and you shout "Sara promised me coffee!" and your friend and fellow director looks over at your group (while she is rehearsing her group) it got quite interesting. Oh well, it was fun!! And I still love Mama T!! ~wink wink~
Not my strongest poem ever, but it's my first crack at trying this style. Might even try more down the road.
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...
Push away and morning breaks
Awareness birthed again
Life celebrates day
Only after eyes sees cup
Cup sees eyes after only
Day celebrates life
Again birthed awareness
Breaks morning and away push
