We create our own prompt today at We Drink Because We Are Poets and so I wanted to try a Palindrome again!
Colors excited eyes
Walking the Market, Piazza Erbe, Monday:
Three carrots, a yellow bell pepper and a zucchini he bought,
Monday, Erbe Piazza, the Market walking…
eyes excited: colors
“I write like” says this is James Joyce’s style…hmmm weird…will write a post on I Write Like!
I find palindromes to be one of the trickiest poetry to write. This one makes sense to and fro and the picture just adds to the senses. Lovely Georgia!
Thanks Shainbird…I find that palindromes are a challenge, it’s difficult to make them come out with any meaning…and I’ve read that in our times, the English speaking world is the only place where palindromes are still attempted (Bill Bryson: Mother Tongue) basically because our language rules are so very versatile! I’m glad you liked it! 😉
Are you fluent in Italian? How is the poetry world over there?
Oh yes, I speak Italian 23 hours a day and read in that language too…but I don’t write in Italian…I need too much editing, it has strict grammar rules! Poetry is everywhere here…we have everything from rap to nonets and the ottava rima etc, …people favor rhyme (it’s really easy to rhyme in Italian!) but free verse is abundant. Of course they also translate poetry from other languages…but basically people prefer their poetry with music. Do you speak Italian? 🙂
