A palindrome, by definition, is a word, phrase, verse, sentence, or even poem that reads the same forward or backward.
It stems from the Greek word palindromos: palin, meaning again, and dromos, meaning a running.
Combining the two together, the Greek meaning gives us, running back again...
Shown below are examples of the
word-unit palindrome. The carefully placed words form the same sentence, whether it is read forward or backward. For
example, 'Mirrored images reflect images mirrored' which includes a word in the center as a reversal point for the sentence
or even the poem.

the echoing waters,
clarity removed -
Reflections distorted through waves rippling;
- reflect -
rippling waves through distorted reflections -
Waters echoing the touching foliage;
delicately placed leaves falling -
continuously traveling, moving always,
