Reverse poems are written to be read top to bottom, and conversely, to be read bottom to top. When read in reverse, the poem should elicit a reversal of the tone and sentiment that is given reading it forward. Some incorrectly refer to this as “mirror” poetry, but that is an entirely different form, which we will address at some point in this series, hopefully. https://commonsensiblyspeaking.wordpress.com/2020/05/15/whittled-words-reverse-poem/comment-page-1/?unapproved=4605&moderation-hash=380f46b74fafb8f2f74d22b65f51c0c2#comment-4605
Ode to mourning
All your days can still shine bright
Despite the showers that rage
And the storm that you feel is real
Your loss is forever.
Give in to your feelings
Mourn the dead as you have praised the living.
Light may shine another day.
Gray clouds will cover you
Let yourself feel the pain
Grief will eat you
Tend to your inner self
Do not pretend it hurts no more
This feeling is incomprehensible
It buries you.
It clouds the sun.
