Hi friend, i read this writing deeply, trying to find the truth in the first idea that came to me. ..of deep beauty, and silence, that lie at the back of the night. For there is a certain mystic beauty in the night..not seen by many, but you saw it and felt it .this is what i like with this writing.
Well done. Hold on to this silence .
Benny Beeharry

Hi Debi,

What an enchanting poem. I'm actually a morning person, but after reading this, I think I should spend more time outdoors in the evening.

My favorite stanza:

How moonlight caresses it,
and starlight enhances it.

Hugs,
Lou

Very interesting. It can read top down and bottom up. My favorite stanza is the one with all animals harmonizing with nature. Great flow and rhythm throughout. Well crafted. Les

This poem is exceptional. Please consider six stars from me to you. Your lovely poem surely must have been a challenge to write and you succeeded. Beautifully described and presented. Marilyn

I am not familiar with the structure of this style of poetry. This is very well written and its beauty held me attention. There is good imagery and descriptive scheme.

Quite a challenge in coming up with something as good as you accomplished with this Palindrome. And, too, a great brain exercise for one's comprehension abilities...Any way one reads your poem. I like, also, how you emphasize the nocturnal peace that certain animals, & insects ( crickets) can bring...Think that first part had a cricket chirping & second half had chirping crickets. Though, too, letting us know how alive the night can be.

    Thank you for the very encouraging review. Yes, it was quite the brain exercise. I don't know that I will do another Palindrome any time soon. Thank you for insights about the nocuturnal night life. You got it, reverse those lines..crickets chirping and chirping crickets. I appreciate you stopping by to read and review.

    Hi Jax,
    Thank you for the wonderful sixer and the great comments! You made my day!
    I was a little surprised that I wrote this since I wrote one palindrome a couple months ago and found it so difficult. I thought it would be the only one ever, but here is number two. That might be my limit with this form though. I am so happy you enjoyed it. Thank you.

Debi;
-I truly enjoyed your writing my friend grasp the essence of the nocturnal evening
with your both metaphorical and physical imagery. Both the imagery were very
distinct and clear physically and vividly and demonstratively descriptive throughout.
-I found a few very minor issues that I'd like to bring to your attention. For the use of the word as instead of and In the lines: "How enhancer starlight AS it caresses moonlight." The use of a junction here is repetitive as the word and. Also the word AND could be omitted in this next line: "Welcome()beloved mystery."
-Your poem reads very smoothly due to the fact that your cadence, timing and tempo originally makes your reading clear, fluid and easy.
-The picture you chosen is outstandingly appropriate and very complementary and relative to the poem.
-Very good use of enjambment which is the running out of a thought and concept from one stanza and line to the next without a syntactical break.
-I really liked how you referred to the night in so many different ways.
-Thank you for sharing and posting and may the good Lord always be with you my friend.
Alex

    Hi Alex,
    Thank you for the suggestions. I tried them out, and loved how they worked forward, but didn't like the way they read when I wrote them backwards. For me it changed the meaning so in the end I did leave the lines as is. I DO appreciate you taking the time to make the suggestions so that I would consider the options and try them out. Thank you for the excellent and detailed review. I see that you placed in the reviewing contest. Keep up the good work. Debi

    Debi; Thank you for the congratulations yeah sometimes it never does work out well even with suggestions and I thought that might've been a problem. Have a good day and a very good evening.

This is a nice poem about nighttime. I live on the plains where night is not interrupted by the hustle and bustle of the city. The stars are beautiful and the noises of nature spectacular. Thanks for sharing. God bless.

    Thank you for the excellent review. You are lucky to live where you can see the stars and enjoy the sounds of nature. I used to, but the city has moved in. Time for me to move, I think. Thank you for stopping by to read and share your thoughts. Debi
