Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge– The Deepest of Truths

Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge asked us to use the words: deep and truth.

Here is my contribution for this week:

My apologies to The “Mona Lisa,” one of my favorite paintings of all time and to Leonardo Da’ Vinci.  I just felt like these were the words behind her smile.

Many thanks to you for stopping by and sharing this cup of coffee with me.  I can’t wait until our next visit!

  1. I love that painting as well but would never have thought to have put the prompt words for the haiku and the painting together. Well done, Colleen. You mind is so brilliantly creative. Thanks for the coffee. My turn next 🙂

    1. Thanks Hugh. The crazy part is that it just came to me in a flash. I worry I might speak in Haiku! LOL. I love it 😃

      1. Haha, you’ve just invented a brand new language, Colleen. Maybe this is how we should all speak with each other in Ronovan’s haiku group. What fun that would be in trying to come up with answers to questions.


  2. The debate on the Monaliza smile is a big one, and many a news channels or writer has contemplated it.

    As for the Haiku well it just seems to speak of the truth of Life. Beautiful and profoundly deep meaning.

  3. I think you saw the two sides of the possibilities. For one I don’t so much see the smile on the left side of the painting. And one has to wonder if Leonardo captured her exact feelings in the eyes as the smile gives. I am rambling so I will end there.


    1. I could do a whole blog post about the Mona Lisa. I never realized how visual I am. No wonder I did not like doing accounting for a living! LOL!
