Mona Lisa why (1 of 2)

Mona Lisa why?
Mona Lisa loves sunshine
Rather, speechlessly cries… Why!?

See her left side’s show?
A scared girl’s face through window?!
With her straight blond hair does stroll?

Looking at the sky!?
Where darkness swivels to shine!
Strangely with enormous fright!!

Weirdly, heaven’s daze!?
Scares children as in chess mate!?
Gazing speechless and in vain!?

There’s lunar eclipse?
Behind her right sad eye’s wink
Over a dancer’s hybrid!

See her right thumb seems
A barge or a submarine
Off the cost line drifted in!?

See her right pinky?
Blistered for testing hot sea
Yet does not yelp for any!?

What was she thinking?
Was she hypnotized quickly?
Or shocked with painful heckling?

Tilt her to her right
Her right shoulder shows might
When the Red Sea slides inside!

Tilt her down to six
See the Black Sea draining its
River down curly stream quick?!

See the small bright dots?
Planets aligning below her smock
Attending all featured folk!?
 
Carefully look at!!!
Away from your face one foot far!!!
Get a pair of scissors and…
 
Exhume her upside
Down composure for a while!
Could a nail asteroid breach bile!!!

Until mudslides fill
In the huge gap as though it
Looks like collider’s strange zit!!!

Splits the atmosphere
As if dividing soil beneath
Dazzling earth was once believed!!

Carefully just glimpse!!!
See a comet passing quick!!
Or an edge of a ringlet!! 

Does not slap the earth
For heaven’s and saints’ dear sake
Drifted slowly by strong faith!!

Tilt to quarter till
Volcano Mountain leaks gas!
Shown under her sliced thin chin

Lava slides down hill?!
When snow covers the land’s bin
In Mediterranean’s fin!
