Skipping Stone Memories Poem!

I wrote this the other day in an attempt to write a Palindrom Poem – Mirrored Poetry. This type of poem is to read the same way forward and backwards. The center word is the reverse of the prior sentences.

For some reason or another, I decided to try different poetry styles as a challenge even though I’ve only been writing poetry for a year. Anyways, here goes my blog poem.

Stone Memories,
triggered song, restless thoughts,
or moment that appears familiar,
from times adored,
some truly abhorred,
but beauty
such ponderings
lives within
within lives
ponderings such
beauty but
abhorred truly some,
adored times from
familiar appears that moment or,
thoughts restless, song triggered,
Memories Stone,

My other challenge is finding a picture for my Skipping Stones Poem. I’d like to even use it as a background on my blog, but I haven’t found a picture. If you have a picture you’d like to share of skipping stones that isn't copyrighted, I’d appreciate you letting me know. In the meantime, I’ll keep up the search.

Have a Great Weekend!


  1. Bea,

    I’m a little late as I see you already posted the picture. Here is one more palindrome photo found on Microsoft’s “Bing” that might work also.

    Have a great weekend as well!

  2. You're never late, Veejay, things can be changed. I've been playing around with the format of my blog, but I'm afraid to make changes. *bites nails* Thanks for the picture.

    Bing! LOL! I've been using Bing too. I gotta support my Microsoft stock. :)

  3. I love the picture for your heading. Try searching in Flckrfor skipping stones. Amazing what you can find there.


  4. Steve,

    I'm glad you like my heading picture. It's actually one I took when I was in Stonington, Connecticut.

    I appreciate the tip and plan on hitting up Flckr for some possibilities.

    Take it easy.

  5. I wasn't home last Friday and missed this post, but what strikes me about it is how difficult it must be to write, to make it work. It's a lovely verse, the sentiment touching, in a quiet way that I think many can relate to.

  6. Thanks Joanne. It was difficult to write to have both forward and backwards make the same sense, but it was a fun difficult task. :) I'm glad you like it.
