week 464 ~ as if the Mona Lisa came alive

with 2 comments

as if the Mona Lisa came alive
and politely asked for a martini
straight up explaining breathlessly no jive
it’s hard outrunning the paparazzi
extra olives and light on the vermouth
she settles in and tells tall tales about
da Vinci and the joys of misspent youth
you better pay attention or she’ll pout
but as you start to ask a question she
looks up perturbed and says it’s time to go
she still has an important date to keep
and you’re left wondering what that could be
poised on the edge of a dream who can know
what goes on beyond the borders of sleep

week 260 ~ I know that Mona Lisa smile

with 7 comments

me.260I know that Mona Lisa smile
one corner up the other still
unsure deciding if it will
let joy sing out or wait awhile
savor the moment to beguile
time but when the corners begin
to slide apart and discipline
succumbs to delight well you’ll see
it’s less mysterious merely
DaVinci’s prelude to a grin
