  • I'm a giros origami.
    - Ray N. Franklin, © 13:55 19 Dec 2019
    Seed:  origami
    Time:  30 minutes
    
    Starting from the seed origami, the first line below almost leapt off the screen. I chose the im-a-giro split. Though the contraction "I'm" is not in the Palindromedary, it was an obvious possibility. Both giro and giros were in the words list for the right fragment. Originally, giro was short for autogiro, an early precursor to the helicopter. Some also use that spelling for the Greek sandwich, properly called a gyros. Though I spent half an hour trying to expand the palindrome, the first line remains the best.
    
    * I'm a giros origami
    * llama I'm a giros origami a mall
    * Alive! I'm a giros origami evil A.
    * Liam, I'm a giros origami, mail
    * Liana, I'm a giros origami, a nail.
    * Sega, listen. I'm a giros origami, net silage's
    * Mao, listen. I'm a giros origami, net Siloam
    * So, listen. I'm a giros origami, net silos.
    
    This palindrome wrapped up my experiment. I managed to produce four palindromes in two hours and twenty minutes, spaced out over half a day, an unqualified success in my opinion.
    
    Origami was also the springboard for a poem containing three more palindromes. With another hour of work, I had a poem in four quatrains, an enigma of mi, and a plurality of palindromes. I'm saving that poem for a future publication, probably the first Palindromedary anthology.
  • Krab-mealworm-wasted, a cadet saw Mr. Owla embark.
    - Ray N. Franklin, © 09:23 19 Dec 2019
    Seed:  wasted
    Time:  20 minutes
    
    I started this on the verbs list and landed on wasted. The rest followed fairly quickly. I strongly associate the word cadet with sailing ships, and mealworms with the hardtack sailors ate. Going with the nautical (or maybe spacefaring) theme, the word embark seemed like a good way to expand "em". Krab naturally follows, which is a marketing term for fake crabmeat. I liked the image of a cadet drunk on whatever makes Krab mealworms tolerable. Perhaps the combination ferments without any further assistance.
    
    * wasted det saw
    * wasted a cadet saw
    * mealworm wasted a cadet saw Mr. Owla em
    * Krab-mealworm-wasted, a cadet saw Mr. Owla embark.
    
    This was the first palindrome I composed during an experiment to see how many I could create in a relatively short amount of time.
  • Re: tawnier rein water.
    - Ray N. Franklin, © 10:01 14 Dec 2019
    Seed:  water
    Time:  5 minutes
    
    I first explored the re-taw split of water, ignoring words that end in "re" (there are 905), and focusing instead on words that start with "taw". I quickly took a shine to tawnier and the palindrome soon fell into place. With "re" at the beginning, it looked like a legal title and I decided to stop there.

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.
