Judging Comment - Dancing Rainbows (Palidrome) by Hellon points 7 - this was one of the main poems this week which has been stuck in my head and I have read over and over again. The imagery, infact the whole piece, is sublime.
This week has been the hardest to judge - there have been so many wonderful gems of formed poetry! Hellon’s Palindrome is perfect in form and has as much meaning backwards as it does forwards. It paints a beautiful picture of a moment of nature, frozen in time. Icicles and the things that ice and frost do in nature are undeniably stunning, and this poem reflects that brilliantly and takes us right there. :-) x
