All the people who got introduced to the wonderful world of ambigramming through the ‘Angels and Demons’ you might want to check these links.
As Paxy says, a good ambigram must follow the criteria of : Symmetry, Legibility, Aesthetics.
That’s what makes it a piece of art, isnt it? Why wait then? Go ahed and do some ambigramming. Someday I shall do one good ambigram. What about you?
In the envy of the souls I fear no throes,
nor in the failure of the task i see pain.
In the doom that waits I see no threat
nor in the stranger that lurks i see peril.
In the darkness of night i fear no wraiths,
Aint in the noir of the sun i fear any faiths.
Nor in the pain of the self i fear any throes,
Even in the face of death I fear no one.
Only the maze of time i fear the most,
Of being forgotten as life zooms by,
Pain that rips, the heart, that throbs
in the mind, full of fear of the null.
The waves of time that creep slowly unnnoticed,
melting away the castles of sand that were built great.
Now lost as an identity that’s one in a thousand,
Amongst a million others that are ones a thousand too.
Sad is it when i come to realize,
That in oblivion now dwell the greats of the past.
What is a temple without a deity,
But a building of stone and bricks.
What is a garden without the flowers,
But mud and soil, barren and cold.
What is a kindgom without its queen,
but orphaned, alone and agitated?
What is a guitar without the strings,
Mute, with aint the chords that strum the heart.
What are the woods without the birds,
Eerie and silent without the music that fills all.
What is the world without the air,
but restless and choking till the end.
What is the earth withou the sun,
Dark and blind from the darkness that pervades all.
What is the Warrior without his armor,
Naked, Alone and waiting his death.
What is a human without a heart,
But a stone-cold, useless critter.
What am I without you?
but a been than an am.
