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:

Mona_Lisa

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. Ooh good one! Highly appropriate for the prompt and the painting — well done!

  2. Love how you used the Mona Lisa!

  3. You are a pro. Beautiful. Deep.

  4. 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 🙂

  5. Wow! I’m impressed.

  6. Reblogged this on Reviews & Recommendations and commented:
    Wow!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
