Rock | A Mirror Poem
Life mirrored in rock
Through the ages of the Cosmos
Repeating the beat:
Mirrors of rock.
Mirrors of rock
Repeating the beat of the Cosmos
Through the ages:
Life mirrored in rock.
How This Poem Came to Be
I originally wrote this poem to accompany an art piece in my college art class. The photo at the top is not that artwork; that piece is too large for my scanner.
This is what I always thought of as a 'mirror poem.' It is somewhat related to a crab canon in music. A crab canon is like a musical palindrome. In one form, two players sit across from each other, the music on the table between, and each begins to play from the same sheet, at the point which, from their perspective, is the top of the page.
In another format, the music is simply written out in the backwards-to-forwards manner using two staffs, one player reading one staff, and the other the second.
