Mona Lisa Could See 2 of 2

Drop picture till six
The land like Pokémon kills
Nearing a tornado’s kiss?

Lift picture to three
The earth seems a lot different
 And looks extreme wilderness!

Turn picture upward
Rapid rivers dash inward
Floods hit mountains and stumble! 
 
See Ottoman cries!
Its history in Palestine
Breaks loudly a hurting cry!

Until the see twirls
Syrian shores to Lake Err!
 In one tsunami fits in!

Turn picture around
Look at it from the back side
Night time is facing big sigh!

Walk around clockwise
Walk around counter clock’s wise
What’s the difference at bright?

Look carefully at
While standing behind that
Her shoulders and her two arms

South America?
Thirst for the Atlantic’s tap
See a side face that had trapped?

Is there another mountain?
Leaking black gas surrounding
Happy carnival, walking? 

See the dancing sleeves?
While wild fire nears the streets
On her leaning arm as seen?

The plate is moving!
South America swimming?
The south is wetting valleys!

Would waters sink in?
Reaching Amazon’s region
From the forest’s province?

Incline her to three
See volcano born from sea?
Crafting her right cheek’s sad fear?

Is it Gibraltar?
Suddenly speaks, spreads horror
Causing Mona Lisa’s shock?

Tilt her down to six
See Morocco’s beaches quick?
Nearing the west in a blink?

Or causing that lint
To near Africa’s dark flint?
Marrying mounts in a blink?

Prop to quarter till
Watch! The height of the waves bring
Over Mona’s head curving!

Prop her upward to
See again what had done to
See fire rocks drop next to!

Is she hugging babe?
Alive or faint but looks dead?
Leaning on her charm screen scared?

She’s holding a rose!
Or holding one stem of corn?
Looks like child’s hand overall!

Near a villager’s 
Boat on top of the mountain
Does sail or drifts to go float?

But, a pyramid
More likely to look amid
Mountain tops and gardens’ bits!

Spin picture right this
Minute, a serpent showing
Behind two wed couples’ kiss!

Aruba under 
Her nose moving to northeast
Survives a great flood beneath!

Walk ahead the screen
See Mona is still weeping
For two thousand twelve... searching!
By: Nadia F. Shahwan – April 2009.  Note: This is an innocent discovery to analyze the 
beauty of the famous Mona Lisa by Van Gogh.
