    Hi John - Palindrome poems are very difficault to compose because of the clumsy and ungramatical inversions that can occur in the second half. You have cleaverly avoided this by using short sentences (2 or 3 words) that are grammatical and meaningful backwards or forwards. The drama of the storm (due to your excellent choice of words) is equally dramatic and real in the second half - as in the first - perhaps even more so! You have overcome the major problem (inversion) of plaindromes in a very neat way. I score it ten for the excellence of content and form. You have a positive comment from Pat Masterman - she is a master of the palindrome and has posted some excellent examples. Yours in Poetry - JOHN (Report) Reply

    This has great repetition and reads both ways so you have perfectly caught the form and the storm and I can feel the tension in the air. It is compelling reading and you have done a great job of this. 10 love Karin (Report) Reply
