Mona Lisa

Written by: Oluwatobi Ogundiran

Canvas of eternal adoration;
Man's best use of gouache -

What do you know, Mona?
That lurks beneath your smirk?
What do you conceal, Lisa?
Shrouded in the folds of enigma?

At the touch of your radiance
Hands wield bristols
At the glimpse of your perfection
Supreme Mother of Creativity
From whose lips issue 
The breath of Muse

Canvas of
