!ovarB !gnizamA (Sorry...that's about all the creativity I have today!) Another wonderful write Henry, that raised a few eyebrows as I raised and flipped the laptop to read! Still pondering my own...

Sorry for deletion... typed the wrong comment—had too many winds open. Must say I never had to turn over my laptop to read a post! I like your poem especially for being different. Plus, it's really well written.

hedgewitch said...

I have no idea how you did this but it's cool--unfortunately,I'm not on a laptop and I can't lift my monitor and turn it upside down--I've deciphered a few words, and enjoyed them though.

Until I can perfect the technique of standing on my head, your post will remain unread...

Christine said...

You have no idea how hard this was with someone who has endless neck pain. But it was worth it, that and the head rush.

Anna said...

haha! Creative...I think you found the "underside of poetry writing online"! :) Nice job!

C Rose said...

Tested the reading skills a bit... but fabulous piece, only to be enhanced by its structure! How'd you do that anyway?

Mary said...

Yes, I am interested in knowing how you did this too. Clever. This is the first time I have seen an upside-down write!

Eclipse said...

...Creative and the least expected :)
