Mona Lisa Could See 1 of 2

Written by: Nadia Shahwan

Mona Lisa could
See without reasonable doubt
Progression of innate bound

She looks pregnant, but
No child dwells in that picture
What surprise as expectant?

What is she lifting?
She looks heavy just standing?
Or tired as she’s sleeping?

Is the core brewing 
Something that’ll provide liquid
As icing on mountains’ bricks?

Could this be the way
When a new gift flips thruway
Is formed in a strange leeway?

So, could a new land be
Formed, new basins, fountains’ hiss
Chanting for heaven’s true bliss?

No watch in her wrist
Turn picture left until till
Black smoke at the right fills in
Drop picture till six
