Titillating Experience

Mom caught her boob in the washer’s wringer
Rotor made Mom an opera singer
    Tit for tat, she got redder
     Pop struggled with the lever
I pulled the plug, was able to spring ‘er

Wow!  Mum is the word on this awful day
We don’t refer to this deed of foul play
     “Hah! Your Dad’s a dud," she cried
     As with pain pills she was plied
Now under the radar Pop stays away




*Entry for David William’s Palindrome Mad Contest

Palindrome Words:
Mom, boob, rotor,  tit, tat, redder, Pop, Wow, Mum, refer, deed, Hah!, Dad, dud, radar

If Death Should Visit Me Today

(Can be read up or down) IF DEATH SHOULD VISIT ME TODAY Whether young or old and gray As earthly life is swept away Please do not mourn, do not be sad Just think of joy yet to be had. Set loose from flesh, forever free To sail a calmer, endless sea— Eternity, my new-found home Within which I will freely roam Inside a greater spirit shell— For then my soul will grow and dwell Upon the peace, I will collect. But most of all, you must reflect We'll meet again in time, my dears— In other worlds, in other years Beyond the light of cosmic ray Beyond the sight of human clay IF DEATH SHOULD VISIT ME TODAY Sandra M.

~ Venus and Mars ~

As the stars cross this brumous night ~

Standing here with these white washing tides

Carrying away the sands beneath my feet

Glancing beyond the repetitious of this champagne sea

Swells amid the rifts now rising....

Before my thoughts and inside of my heart

Communing with a chromatic collage of endless faces ~

This colloquy within my own souls revelations

As the mist before my eyes begins to clear

And the lighthouse of truth, as truth is, begins to appear

Castaway phantoms walking upon the waters

Beckoning unto me all of their beauties ~

Their irreplaceable hopes and dreams....

Transcending the tangibles, amid an unproportional world 

The relevancies of every life, speaking unto me 

As a warm tear rolls down my face

While Jupiter explodes, before my eyes ~

Impaling my spirit with these impeccable purities....

Sublime; as I walk further into the swishing swirling currents

Toward the fathoms of acceptances understandings

Taking their precious hands, as the moon smiles upon their, glow ~

Born anew, within this panoramic and palindrome view....

Embracing their beating breathing hearts~These creations!

Turning back the tides of time; castaways no more

For it is all of life that I see now, deep inside the splendor

The wonders of whom they are, each, as a precious jewel ~

Awakened, amid these implosive clarities....

As the stars cross the fading brumous night

Standing here with the white washing tides

Carrying away the sands beneath my feet, forever ~

Glancing beyond the repetitions of this champagne sea 

Phantasms of once thought lore, smiling as they come alive

Lessons learned, and shifting dunes, of truths unfold....

While these rubies as tears, fall, from the corners of my sight

Marking my cheeks, unto their graves of what used to be

Slightly quivering lips; as these endless wells of emotion, arise inside

Realizing, how much I truly care, for each and every one, of their lives ~

Mars, now embracing Venus with, an everlasting kiss....

                       ~ Of ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

           ~ Unconditional Love! ~

SATAN OSCILLATE MY METALLIC SONATAS

*****To the naked EYE, this poem may seem like gibberish,
but I assure you it is loaded with 24 palindromes,
3 palindrome phrases, 1 hidden palindrome phrase,
and is chock full with enormous wordplay...
oh and one more palindrome in this description. 
Can you find more? I challenge you word freaks!*****


____SATAN OSCILLATE MY METALLIC SONATAS____

Last night, around eleven or so, I decided to paint a pink castle.
To my dismay, on display, is what looks more like a pink *******.
Picasso would've been so proud!
Today, upon recording nothing short of a colossal debacle,
I've chosen to
utilize the eyes of a hostile apostle.
Tossing docile scribble, I'm scribing.
Describing life like a diatribe conniving REVIVER at a revival.

LIVE EVIL!

Palindrome EYE to the side of my tribe.
Get in line, standing at the hands of HANNA.

PULL UP.

RISE AND VOTE SIR!

EYE
LEVEL 
to 
NUN'S
BOOB.

WOW!

We OTTO-matically 
POP a PEEP at NOON!
DAD got so damn mad he DID the DEED
and split three XANAX with his MADAM and MOM!
(ALA the ABBA GIG way back in them AHA kookie KOOK days)

So anyways...
Back to peek hassle!
Do ya' think he might like ta' take a stab at my STATS?


*****(this was fun as fun can be:
hope you have half as much fun with it as I did:)*****

A Palindrome called Temptation

A Palindrome, also called Mirrored Poetry, is a poetry type not listed, so I put it under Free Verse.  If anyone finds a better categoy for this please let me know.  Thomas
______________________________________________________________________

Temptation

Temptation
And **** replaced love
Day after day
We are bombarded
Sex and beauty
Objects over heart
Thoughts lustful, confused reality
Isolation supplanted communication
Clouds out move clarity
Facade my life
~Redemption~
Life my facade
Clarity move out clouds
Communication supplanted isolation
Reality confused lustful thoughts
Heart over objects
Beauty and sex
Bombarded are we
Day after day
Love replaced **** and
Temptation

My Friends in Poetry

Dear Alliteration, 
First friend, foremost;
Forgetting not,
Shy Allegory, 
Dressed in Allusion; 
Sweet Anaphora, 
How I need thee! 
How I need thee!
 
And Assonance; 
Never deep asleep, 
Nor rest Refrained, 
By Caesura; 
Clever Chiasmus; 
Who has pause to write, 
And write to pause; 
Cheeky Consonance, 
Agreeing;
Time needs its tick-tock, 
Rocked at chimes; 
How Didactic, 
An Ictus, 
Ellipsis, 
Is that?
 
Clink — tinkle; 
Cubes in a glass; 
Bourbon mist; 
Hello; 
Onomatopoeia is back, 
From visiting, 
Palindrome, 
At Lake Oxoboxo, 
Madam Eve, 
Our favorite, 
Paradox, 
Not pair a ducks, 
Nor Parataxis, 
She quacked not; 
She waddled not; 
She flew not; 
End stopped; 
Did not, 
Run into Enjambment, 
Iambic, 
Pentameter, 
On foot nearby; 
Rhyme Royal chanting;
Prose babbling, 
Out of line, 
Screaming;
Vers libre!
Vers libre!

Pathos, 
Pity me; 
Scan not,
My prosody;
Bravo!
The coins are tossed;
O my dear friends, 
In poetry, 
Therein lay, 
Our Eulogy, 
Paradise Lost.

A Palindrome Tale

A Palindrome Tale

I’ve got a tale to tell you of travel, love and lust
The travel, it was joyful, my love life was a bust
I met a girl in Tulsa, next day my diary read
A **** nixes sex in Tulsa; “Dammit, I’m mad” I said
So I went off to Europe to see the Mona Lisa
I thought it was in Italy; but as I pee, sir, I see Pisa!
A Delia saw I was ailed; I’m a fool; aloof am I
When she offered me spaghetti, I said “I prefer pi”
And then I found Naomi – Naomi did I moan?
I did, did I? I can not lie.  I headed back to home
And then I met this Madam; as mad as Adam, she
Evil did I dwell, lewd I did live; God saw I was dog tired
Live not on evil they did say; Then my luck expired
Revered now, I live on. O did I do no evil I wonder ever
No sir, panic is a basic in a prison where I dwelt
Ned, I am a maiden; not a banana baton had I felt

Mdailey	3/31/12

A **** nixes sex in Tulsa; 
Dammit, I’m mad 
as I pee, sir, I see Pisa!
Delia saw I was ailed 
I’m a fool; aloof am I
I prefer pi
Naomi did I moan?
I did, did I? 
mad as Adam
Evil did I dwell, lewd I did live
God saw I was  dog
Live not on evil 
Revered now, I live on. O did I do no evil I wonder ever
No sir, panic is a basic in a prison 
Ned, I am a maiden
not a banana baton

Palindromes Seasons

The grass "dewed" in spring’s early morning shimmer
Upon a crocus lay an "alula" in the sun with a glimmer
A symbol of many flights on every "level" there is to be
Whether it be "solos" or those together, feeling free

Often at "noon" Robin hop across the sunny land
Their "stots" fun to watch, then so still they do stand
Summer brings the "pop" of fireworks in the sky to see
Hummingbirds, "kayak", cookouts and bumble bee

Fall for me can sometimes bring on a "doom mood"
As fun summer "sagas" end, squirrels scramble for food
Winter looms but "live not evil", for there is Christmas "Eve"
Followed by Christmas, a "tenet" most important to believe

~~~~~~~***~~~~~~~

Author's Comment: Palindrome, also known as the Mirrored Poem, reads forwards and 
backwards.   It stems from the Greek word palindromos: palin, meaning again, and dromos, 
meaning a running. Combining the two together, the Greek meaning gives us, running back 
again. The concept of the “mirrored images” reflects an “image mirrored,” which includes a 
word in the center of the poem as a reversal point for the sentence or even the poem.  
There is no set number of stanzas or any rules for construction.

Peaceful Coexistence

When man and beast communicate
in language form that both equate,
a peace exists where love is king.
We follow roads of charted mien
and render truth within our reign
as honor lifts each living thing.

Portrait of Hannah and Otto on a Lake

Written on April 14, 2012
For Bill William's Palindrome Contest

Hannah and Otto lived by a lake
In a house with an address of 8008.

Some nights they would kayak around and around
So quietly; there was nary a sound.

One night they heard an erie toot and some beeps
And rowed towards the sounds without making a peep.

They each gasped twice when they saw what was there.
It was Ogopogo coming up for air!

Ogopogo turned and smiled at them
They were both wowed; he seemed like a friend.

It turned out that he was quite civil and charming
His conversation was respectful and, therefore, disarming.

And at the end of the exchange, he asked, “Do you happen to know
Where my girlfriend, Loch Nessie, would possibly go?

I’ve been looking around this lake for centuries, it seems
And if I don’t find her soon, I will simply scream!”

A Palindrome: Mothers and Daughters and Mothers

I screamed at her 
like some wicked hellion
trying to rip apart her world.
I was the embodiment of rivalry.

She was growing older. I fed on the rage
I stole from her, I loved young,
I loved hard and fast, and anyone
she hated. I loved like a forest fire

and she could do nothing about it.
She was just my step-mother

Or she was, when I moved in with the guy 
about six years older
Then I met her.
She was about six years old- 
or she was, when I moved in with the guy.

I was just her step-mother,
and I could do nothing about it.

She hated that I loved like a forest fire.
I loved hard and fast, and anyone.
I stole from her, I loved young.
She was growing older, I fed on the rage

I was the embodiment of rivalry
trying to "rip apart her world
like some wicked hellion"
I screamed at her.

Love is Dead

I have been heartbroken again.
Never will I say that
true love can be found
in the most unexpected place,
that is wrong, the truth is,
love sank when the Titanic did
Money and sex 
are more important than
love and loyalty,
to be honest and sincere
is no more the right thing to do;
cheating and flirting around
is the most profitable venture.
To forgive those who broke my heart
seems impossible but I will.
Trying to love myself again
is what I never believed in.
Heartbreak
is what I give to bad girls.
look and leave...
Is the thought that fills my heart.
"I need love to live"
is a lie and
"all girls are cheats".
Marriage is not meant for this generation.
it is absurd to say that
there is true love,
except we reverse it

(This is a Reverse or Palindrome poem, you can read it from bottom to top)
