World Famous Painting Haiku - Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa


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

When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
