Lucky Dip – Saturday Mix, 26 March 2022

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 26 March 2022!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Palindrome. The topic is up to you!

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is Palindrome?

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…

Palindrome

Also Known as Mirrored Poetry

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 centre as a reversal point for the sentence or even the poem.

Example

Reflections

Life-
imitates nature,
always moving, traveling continuously.
Falling leaves placed delicately;
foliage touching the echoing waters,
clarity removed –
Reflections distorted through waves rippling;
gracefully dancing
mirrored images
– reflect –
images mirrored.
Dancing gracefully,
rippling waves through distorted reflections –
removed clarity.
Waters echoing the touching foliage;
delicately placed leaves falling –
continuously traveling, moving always,
nature imitates
life.

    This reminds me of the way Yoda talked, as he had his own order for constructing sentences like Object-Subject-Verb, split verbs, switches entire phrases and he mostly said things that sounded backwards.
