A Da Vinci Ode

Bastard child of Tuscany

Gliding on the thermals

Of your own artistry

Your paradoxical

Mushrooming mind

Spawned myriads of sketches

Tumbling into your daily margins

Fantastical flying machines

Mechanisms of war

And perfect brushstrokes

A gentle ray of sunlight

On the face of the Madonna

Or the smile of the Mona Lisa

You bridged art and science

Turning the tricks of nature

Into intricate clockworks

And imitations of life
