Mona Lisa why (2 of 2)

See the map of that
Nineteen sixty seven had 
Visible picture’s woman!

At her wedding or
A mass of first communion?
See her rosy crown? Prayer!

Mona Lisa is
A scroll?! Painted with valid
Fervent ink of different pin?!

Was she mute’s besiege!
Speaking with soft fingers’ gear!
Absorbing painful cheer’s bear!

Notice a deep hole!
A deepest caldera formed!
Like an apple’s bite’s deep core!

Turn the paper right
Can the earth near a black might?
Faster than bullet’s strange fight!?

Turn the paper round
The clock… A strange looking bound?
Lava seals all things abound?!

See the two half holes?!
Closer to her shoulders fonts!?
Fold paper at pin point’s bolt!

Would Mona become
The lost scroll? Apostles’ road!
The beginning of eon!

A scroll adored mere
Da Vinci knew ever since
A life’s lesson’s exquisite!

Was she a letter!?
With dear magic ink’s butter
Colors mingled together…

Run violet light?
See mountains and oceans fight?
A new map has been so bright?

Try to tape both ends
A new earth reborn again!
Hefty canyons, meadow’s edge…

Da Vinci loved her…
Who drew his final picture!?
Himself?! Other!? I wander…

Since every teacher
Respects the smartest student
Took care of him through illness…!

Where are the salts of 
The earth? Rhyming blissful song?
Cheers… a new clean earth is born!

With zealous love for 
All who worship our Lord
Jesus Christ who saved us all.
By: Nadia F. Shahwan – April 2009 –This poem reflects my innocent observation on the
portrait of Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci.

    This painting has captured the curiosity of people throughout the ages since Da Vinci created it. Still, I see even more in the painting now that I've have read your pair of writes. Excellent observations, skillyfully conveyed! Love, Carolyn
