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.
I’ve had a lifelong interest in English and writing, which I maintained throughout my engineering career. My computer language skills and open-source word lists made the Palindromedary possible, along with a sense of how to apply technology to the task of composing a palindrome. Drawing on my web development experience since 2002, a website seemed the natural choice for first publication.
