Wondering the Possibilities

Palindrome Poetry (also known as Mirrored Poetry)

It seemed she was destined to be alone

She questioned life regarding her existence

She needed a life companion

Though her spirits lifted

She felt broken and shattered

In her heart

Were tidal waves

In her mind

Wondering the possibilities

She started her journey

Her mind was made up

She had to go in search of her soulmate


Palindrome Poetry (also known as Mirrored Poetry), is a poem that reads the same forward or backwards. Like a folded sheet of paper or a perfect reflection, a palindrome depends on symmetry.

Palindrome poetry starts with an initial poem and then hinges on a line that usually repeats directly in the middle of the poem before working through the rest of the lines in reverse order.

When reversed, the poem would still make sense but the meaning would be different.

    Yes I’ve read this one before! Just read again. Cool. 😊

  • Oh wow, what a fantastic style of poetry. And the lines in her heart, in her mind were tidal waves

    Sentimental one 🙃😊!

  • This is verrrrry well done ! I don’t remember reading it before but I can see that I have liked it, so I must have ✨🕊️❤️ How lovely to experience again for the ‘first’ time!

    Dharrsheena, this was another great one! I almost feel like you're my creative writing teacher sometimes because you always teach me about all these different types of poems, writing techniques and skills! It was almost haunting how perfectly this lined up forwards and backwards. I know this is a relatively common poem but usually the backwards version isn't as impactful as the forwards one. Great work overall! 💜

    Wow, this was so cool. I know what I’m gonna try next! The way the emotions hit differently from the initial to the mirrored version, was remarkable. Such cool line lengths, too; they really added to the way I read and experienced them. The emotions were so raw, so real, and it seems to me that you chose the optimal form and style for it. 🥹💜

    I felt the emptiness feeling. Falling in love does not define our life . Very engaging poem

    This is lovely, brilliant, and tragic at the same time (especially the last line when it's reversed!) Truly love this. Excellent work!

    Brilliant work! Thanks for teaching us a bit about palindrome poetry! I’ll try it some time!

  • I feel like there is a suggestion of wandering in the wondering. I really enjoyed this.

    I had never heard of palindrome poetry. This was awesome! Well done.
