Good poetry and use of night imagery. What spoilt it for me was the repetition but don't get me wrong I am in no position to criticise you because writing a palindromic poem is a very skilful art indeed which I am yet to learn. You did a really good job. Thank you for sharing.

    Thank you for taking time to read and review. I am sorry that repetition in poetry spoils it for you. Some of the forms require quite a bit of repeating. In a palindrome you need to make the verse read the same forwards and backwards. You should try one. It is fun an quite challenging.

Hi Debi - this is really very good. Reads well, both forward and back. Lovely words and meaning. A goo read. Well done. I've not done this poetry form - constructing seems very time consuming - warm regards Dorothy x

G'day mate. You have done really well with this most difficult form of poetry, at least for me it is way out of my league. I love the subject matter with all the cool creatures. I always loved nights in the desert, but sadly we don't get wolves in Australia, I wish. Very enjoyable work here my friend. Cheers Fez

    Good day to you, too, Fez. Thank you for gracious comments about the subject matter and the creatures. Hey, we have wolves, you have kangaroos. I don't think I've ever seen a kangaroo in real life, just in pictures and movies. Maybe someday.

This is a wonderful palindrome. Same time description of night is quite natural and worth reading. I have been trying for some time to write one, but so far not successful to go beyond four lines. I know how difficult it is to write such a lengthy poem. Best of luck for the contest

    Thank you for the shiny six stars and the best wishes. This one is not in the contest, but I appreciate the thought. The palindrome is a challenge. Whew! I'm not sure I'll do another one, but it was fun to try. Good luck in your efforts to write one. Thank you for the encouragement.

I've never heard the night time described any better than this. It is just like being there! Great job! Drop by and see me again, sometime! I'll keep the lights on for you! Cletus Hardiman

    Thank you for the six stars and the encouraging comments. I am delighted that you liked this poem about the night. I appreciate the encouragement.

reply by Cletus Hardiman on 06-Nov-2015
    If one cannot encourage someone else, there is something missing in them! If I read part or all of something I don't like, I just move on, saying nothing at all. You do great work. Take care! Clete

This is great, I have tried once a palindrome but I miserably failed. It is really difficult to cook up words that will read the same forward as it does backwards. You did it so well here. Bravo. Thanks for sharing.

This is a well-written verse. I really liked the imagery in this piece. The picture was perfect for the thoughts here as well. It does read well from bottom to top as well. I enjoyed reading this excellent piece of poetic art... John

This is not just supremely clever as a palindrome but is a poem of great beauty in its own write. I tend to wade straight in to the poems unless there is a not asking me to read the notes first, and I have to admit that I don't always take in the titles as a result.

The result of these bad habits that at first I thought I was involved in a piece off intricate mirror symmetry, which of course I was because that is the nature of the palindrome.

I have only ever written one palindrome of comparable length to this and that was some years ago and, unlike this one, what it gained palindromically it lost in beauty. You must have sweated blood over this one. Has to be worth my last six of the week.

    Thank you! Your last six--I am flattered. I appreciate the kind remarks about the writing. Thank you for recognizing the difficulty, as only someone who has tried a palindrome could. It was an interesting form to tackle. I'm not sure I'll ever do it again though. Whew! Thank you for a great review.

Good palindrome. Solid construction and good visualization. Evokes all five senses with good word choices and onomatopoeia. Breaking the free verse into small stanza chunks worked very well, both visually and for flow

Night removes all chatter
all extraneous light
and leaves you with the essence
of stars and moons
the sounds of unseen crickets, owls
frogs and wolves
the peace of perfection
and the perfection of peace
An a parallel universe in a palindrone
A great reflection on night
Six stars for your spectacular insight
