If Da Vinci Was on an Iceberg

by James Zealy

If Davinci was on an iceberg

Where would inspiration fly
For the secretive Mona Lisa smile
Or would it say a Man's oil and no Salami

Who would create wings perpendicular
perpendicular to winged body flight
So man could deny natures gravity will

And How would the haunting Calamity
where the 12 save 1 Said a worshipful goodbye
Flow from his loving brush strokes

Or who would show
The true enlightenment
Of combining art and science

And when would we notice
The difference


Author's Note: This is a response to a 30's word and form challenge from Stephan Anstey. Stephan this was tough, I hope this is what you had in mind. cavity calamity gravity salami realistic perpendicular Topic: DaVinci on an iceberg Form: anadiplosis

I agree with Andi - the ending line tied up any loose ends for me. For me, the way you tied the words into a somewhat cohesive (albeit angular)string of thoughts was quite genius. Impressive!
