Changing Words for Creative Effect

Yesterday and the day before I exhibited the colours poem/diagram to show how words can be changed around in a line to produce a reflective effect.

I had done that poem years ago, and it only came to me a couple of days ago that it’d be a good way of explaining the reverse folding mirror effect.

Changing Words to Connected Ones to Avoid Repetition

Then, this morning, I was thinking that it can also be used to show how changing the words in either side of the poem can produce a more interesting effect, although sometimes you may prefer to keep the words the same in both halves to achieve the effect you desire.

The use of different words to avoid repetition and spruce up a document is one of the essential rules of writing.

You can view the revised poem/diagram here

Wikipedia Colours (Colors) page

I found the alternative colours at a wikipedia page with a wealth of colour info.
