  • Diary raid!

    My sister valued her privacy, so she never liked this.
  • Dog, huh? Ruff....fur, huh, God?
    - Lloyd Wood, © 15:57 01 Mar 2021
    I guess we all have questions from time to time. I started this one with “ruff fur”. Neat that dogs do this and have that.
  • Dub a bud. Bud a dub. Dub a bud.

    This could go on forever. But then you may end up sounding like a little frog in the distance on a warm spring evening.
  • E. M. Ordni laptop dab is as I; bad pot palindrome.
    - Ray N. Franklin, © 17:45 25 Jun 2021
    A Redditer posted “I” as a palindrome in the palindromes sub-reddit. That's silly. Every letter of the alphabet looks like a palindrome, but isn't. While “A” and “I” are both words, they don't count as palindromes. I wanted to comment in a way that suggested “I” is not a palindrome. My first idea, “E. M. Ordni lap-ons no palindrome” contained the literal message but didn't feel satisying. I played with the middle until I came up with this variant. It’s more subtle and slightly more coherent.
    
  • Erupt on, not pure.

    Dirty volcano!
  • Go home, Delia.
    Trucker trek curtailed.
    Emo, hog!
    - Trucker Poet, © 12:39 14 Aug 2020
    Time: half-hour. I started with trucker, naturally, and I used the palindrome composer. I was surprised by the words available for the split rek-curt. I chose trek for the left word, which made a short palindrome right off the bat! Then I played with the words starting with curt. I liked curtailed because it made sense; an organized convoy of truckers on a trek that got canceled.
    
    What I had: Delia trucker trek curtailed.
    
    Going beyond that was harder. Since the words were all complete, I had to find new ones to expand the sentence. I noticed that "trucker trek curtailed" felt poetic and it could be the middle of a haiku. A haiku palindrome would be cool, so I went with that flow.
    
    With Delia on the first line of the haiku, and the trek canceled, it just occurred to me that maybe a trek organizer would start telling the drivers the bad news. "Go home" felt like a good phrase, and to my surprise, it worked just as well in reverse. I'll let you figure out what the last line means. After all, art is in the eye of the beholder.
    
    And that was it. Finished. As people used to say where I grew up, "It ain't perfect, but it'll do.”
  • Golf won ten awards. Draw a net. Now flog.
    - Lloyd Wood, © 00:13 25 Feb 2021
    Uhh... a golfing fisherman beat his catch?
  • Gum stew? Tim must summit wet smug.
    - Lloyd Wood, © 00:30 25 Feb 2021
    Gum stew? Doesn’t sound very appealing, but the fact that Tim has to get to the top of a soggy adjective seems like a daunting task.

Compose Palindromes

Have you ever tried to compose a palindrome? It can be hard unless you happen to be a stable genius. I’m no genius and I failed to ever write an original palindrome, until I created Franklin’s Palindromedary. I did it to help my underperforming brain. And it worked! The computer did the hard work, and I just supplied a little creativity. I’m sure you are more creative than me and that the Palindromedary will work for you. Give it a try today. I’ll pay you for palindromes I accept for an anthology.
