-Wonderful image for your poem, good presentation, and good imagery.
-The palindrome is done well and the topic is vividly described.
-A few examples I particularly like are:
* "for darkness is spectacular."
* The third stanza with the moonlight, nature, and mystery.
* "How spectacular is darkness,
for darkness embraces night."
-I enjoyed your poem.

w.j.debi,

Well, I have to say you have really outdone yourself here! I know how difficult this form is you have created a gorgeous poem with plenty of beautiful imagery and
magical lines within that palindrome form. It reads perfectly forwards and backwards.

"Nocturnal peace" Yes, I have plenty of that here... I'm up so early that I hear all that peace...just wish I was sleeping:) Anyway, this is very outstanding.

**You do have one tiny flaw...the part where the crickets are chirping...In the forward part you have "Cricket" as singular - The backward part reads "crickets"
so I assume you want the plural in the forward part as well.

Just loved this and consider it an exceptional palindrome! Also perfectly presented with a stunning photo.

    Hi Linda,
    Thank you for the shiny six star rating! As well as the detailed review! I appreciate you taking the time. I fixed the "crickets". I did mean for it to be plural in both places. I read the piece backward and forward so many times my eyes must have gotten crossed. Yes, this particular form isn't one I will tackle often or maybe ever again. It is pretty challenging, but it is good to do it once. Whew!
    I appreciate your encouraging comments and am delighted you liked it.

I love the logic behind your palindrome. Part one is your evocation of night. Then, After dream your dream, part 2 is walking in dreamtime. Excellent craftsmanship!

Hello :)

I am not familiar with palindrome poetry. Yours is beautiful. Night is so majestic and wondrous. It is true, in darkness night, you can see the stars and the moon better. And the sounds of night are beautiful too. Excellent well chosen words. Good job!

Hi, debi. Your entire project is well done, including the dark background which matches the poetry very well indeed. I liked this stanza in particular:

"Nocturnal peace means
croaking frogs, howling wolves,
chirping crickets, hooting owls.
Somehow,
free and boundless,
night is alive."

Bravo! Bob

Well done. I have never heard of this type of poem before. It envelopes itself as it flowed through to the end. The artwork was a good reminder of how beautiful nighttime can be. The animals, I believe also know the beauty also as they sing to fill in the songs harmony.

It's amazing how darkness can wear so many faces. The face you've so excellently portrayed speaks of its wonders and beauty. And for others, at times, darkness generates fear and foreboding. Kudos for a lovely poem.
Peace,
Linda

This is an interesting post that the author has created with this piece of writing. The night has spawned lots of writing from the imaginative mind over thousands of years and this one adds to it nicely.

I always enjoy "nature" poems without exception. It's a release from the materialism of everyday.The effortless way you have achieved this palindrome poetry is simply stunning. What a great idea it is and difficult to sound convicing too.
I don't know how you did it, but you have really pulled it off!

Well done!

    Thank you for the excellent review. I am pleased that you liked this nature poem. Yes, a Palindrome may be a form I don't try again for a long time. Whew! Thank you for your kind comments and encouragement.
