Anamorphosis

Looking into cylindrical mirrors
shadows disappear, meanings are revealed.
Beyond rainfalls
shaking our foundations,
beyond snowfalls
grinding our hope seeds,
all that’s left for us
is to contemplate the endlessness
at least in order to remember
the fine weather from where
we were banished.

.

Note: Anamorphosis is a distorted projection or perspective requiring the viewer to use special devices or occupy a specific vantage point to reconstitute the image. The word “anamorphosis” is derived from the Greek prefix ana-, meaning back or again, and the word morphe, meaning shape or form. (Wikipedia). My poem was initially inspired by the painting “The Ambassadors”.
