Polyacrostic Palimpsest - Nowhere Or Now Here Karen? - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

Notes on Polyacrostic Palindrome Palimpsests.

.

Acrostic: Verse in which certain letters form a word or message

Palimpsest: A manuscript on which more than one text is written
with earlier writing, or one level of meaning, partially visible.


Nowhere or Now Here Karen?


Tender heart hark the ciphers that start skeins true,
Eel-like skin is freely united link refined.
None names rescan, - no need since star none find.
Deeds flower here, deeds flower heard on cue.
Archer love call! Man needs see fair face - you?
Nowhere shrine is named, rich rank find. [Design
Is felt, is hid deep inside, is laid behind
Covers, is meshed, scored, kissed. Here count words few.]
Eyes truth see, hopes share, where lines are knit too.
His pen is wet, - read heaven's clear wish marked, signed.
End dark fear. Her deep dream our healed hearts bind
As new. Sweet madam announce clear – [a]part won't do!
Renaissance near, revealing wonder real
Takes heart, I draw the blinds and truth unreel!


Amour
Nowhere Now here
Karen 11 times
Tend a nice heart 3 times vertical
His hand her hand twice vertical
Tender is her heart 4 times diagonal

Nowhere or Now Here Karine


Internal Acrostics:

Nowhere Now here
Karine 7 times adjacent letters
Tend a nice heart 3 times vertical
His hand her hand twice vertical
Tender is her heart 4 times diagonal
Dream our - Amour



Tender heart hark the ciphers that start skeins true,
Eel-like skin is freely united link refined.
None names rescan, - no need since star none find.
Deeds flower here, deeds flower here on cue.
Archer love call! Man needs see fair face - you?
Nowhere shrine is named, rich line find. [Design
Is felt, is hid deep inside, is laid behind
Covers, is meshed, scored, kissed. Here count words few.]
Eyes truth see, hopes share, where lines are knit too.
His pen is wet, - read heaven's clear wish here signed.
End dark fear. Her deep dream our healed hearts bind
As new. Sweet madam announce clear – [a]part won't do!
Rewards seem near, reveal her wonder real!
To swift withdraw the blinds and truth unreel!
