World Famous Painting Haiku - Leonardo Da Vinci's Mona Lisa - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Mona Lisa
the teacher teaches the girls
how to smile

preserved with colours and canvas
a thousand year old italian smiles
Mona Lisa

a young thousand year old smile
greets my old forty year old smile
mona lisa

mona lisa
a smile that makes
a world of difference

mona lisa
the smile that makes
a world of difference

mona lisa
the joy is art
in a smile

mona lisa
a smile that makes a world
of art

mona lisa
so soft the smile
softer than my heart

so many painted
since cave days
- impressionism, realism, modernism
a woman with a simple smile
takes top spot

    Lovely, yes... I have always enjoyed the simplicity of haiku.
    I wrote a free verse poem on Mona Lisa as well. Check it out! (Report) Reply
