Alphabet Mirror Poem Reflects One From 2010

After there was a lot of greenYgrey in yesterday’s blog I thought I’d add a little POP (PinkyOrangePurple) in today’s blog post Folding Mirror poem. The poem is more about structural concept than sweet rhyme, so please don’t expect anything nicely epic, as I hope some of my recent poems were.

After creating an alphabet Folding Mirror using A-Z for the first letter of the words, and mirroring 5-4-3-1-1-3-4-5 back in 2010, included in my first poetry collection and on this site, this one mirrors first letter in the first half of the poem (coloured pink) with the final letter in the second half of the poem (coloured orange), which is more of a mirror effect and has a 4-4-2-3-3-2-4-4 word formation.

The first half features mostly positive words, and the second mostly negative. Like some other poems, such as the recent Butterfly and Flower, that developed after I’d started the top half of the poem.

Poem of Two Halves, Alphabet Letters and Themes

alphabetical binary coded dualism
eloquent finesse grandiose heroism
investigative journey

kaleidoscopic lenticular maypop , vexation antihero maloprop

umiaq sinker
bottoms undercurrent impromptu lav
below perplex incendiary schmaltz

All real words. I know because I looked up a lot of them, using technology to complement my creativity, and still having to search to find the most suitable!
