Today’s prompt is to write a poem which can be read either forwards or backwards (the last line, or stanza becomes the first and so on).
You might like to consider:
- How can you use the reversal to make a point or tell a story?
- What should be your first and last lines?
- Should you try to make your poem tell the same or a different story when reversed?
- Should you make it clear to the reader that the poem can be read two ways?
Happy reading, happy writing -and if you do write, don’t forget to post your poem (in full or as a link) in the comments below so we can all enjoy it.
