spun: a reverso

Creation.  nightsky.jpg

You’ve spun into existence
music,
feelings,
colors,
creatures,
characters,
heart, mind, soul
–poured out in the power of
Words.


Words:
poured out in the power of
heart, mind, soul–
inkwellcharacters,
creatures,
colors,
feelings,
music.

You’ve spun into existence
creation.


My first attempt at writing a reverso — a poem which tells one story one way, and then, when you flip the lines, changing only punctuation, capitalization, and such, tells a different story.  I think it worked out alright.  Have you ever tried something like this before?

  1. Ooooh, I positively adore reversos. I have a lovely book that retells fairy tales through reversos, so you can see it from two characters’ perspectives—it’s awesome. As is your poem. I love the topic, and you did a great job with it!
