If Mona Lisa Had A Bicycle!

The Mona Lisa is just a picture without a bike at her side.

How much prettier would she be if she had a bike to ride?

Mona Lisa was painted with such a beguiling smile.

Give Mona Lisa a bike; she’ll smile a smile as wide as a mile!

The Mona Lisa is a fixture more than Whistler’s mother.

The Mona Lisa is a pretty picture like so many others.

She has that Mona Lisa look with that Mona Lisa smile.

But- the Mona Lisa riding a bike would be even more worthwhile.

Many artists have taken the brush and painted a pretty girl.

Many took a brush and gave it a curl, and swirl, and a twirl.

It started eons ago on the caveman’s walls.

Without being rude let me exude, what puts a tent in my overalls.

She’s the picture of elegance of course.

She flows and seems to use no force.

She has “that” look. She has “that” dress.

She has class and knows finesse!

She’s right at home with work and play.

She always knows the words to say.

She fits right in with any occasion.

She’s superior with tact and persuasion.

She has so many assets and attributes.

But how do I describe and define her absolutes?

I could take inventory again and again.

And yes, how does one truly begin?

Some might go on about her flowing hair.

Some might prefer to dwell on her derriere.

It may have won some prestigious award.

She has so many assets and many I disregard.

She’s humble and has such a lovely smile.

She has those ways to charm and beguile.

Dents and flaws seem to be nonexistent.

She has an aura. She has a beautiful scent.

The Mona Lisa is just another picture.

Without a bicycle, she’s a museum fixture.

Mona Lisa what is the secret that you hide?

Did Leonardo ask you to go for a bicycle ride?

The colors are nice and it’s painted by a master.

But God gave the Mona Lisa a bike and made her faster!

God gave Mona Lisa life and wheels with wings.

Her instrument is the bicycle. She plays. It sings!

I see my love riding fast and smooth, with riders all around.

Her torso never moves each time her pedal comes down.

She takes a pull at the front and then she moves to the side.

Only the smoothest moves are made when she’s on a bicycle ride.

She’s focused on the task at hand as anyone can see.

She moves with such great ease like a master of Tai Chi.

This mobile work of art blends into every situation.

Her smooth and cohesive riding style is worthy of emulation.

She’s fluid. She has no resistance to stress.

It’s a dynamic viscosity that she doth possess!

She doesn’t just go but she will quickly flow.

Now watch her pedal action and keep her tempo.

On the flats she’s maybe 90 rpms or more.

She considers this pleasure, it’s not a chore.

The pedals are rotating up and down.

That perfect circle is made as the crank is spinning around.

She holds her line, she’s steady, and she’s true.

She’s a grand lady and please don’t misconstrue.

But every attack you make she’ll try to negate.

She’ll pull her weight and then accelerate.

This is no fiction! She has no friction.

This cycling Mona Lisa is now my addiction.

God’s paint brush has now finished my picture.

She’s a part of my heart that is a permanent fixture.

Mona Lisa is so smooth. She’s sweet!

She’s a work of art on a crowded street.

I adore the style with which she rides.

She doesn’t merely ride, she glides!

I often wonder if she was really earth-born.

This Mona Lisa is a rose without a thorn!

It’s so funny that when she’s not on her bike,

I have no idea what she really looks like.

You keep that painting in the Louvre.

You see, it’s not 3-D and it just doesn’t move.

But this cycling Mona Lisa is the Mona Lisa I see.

She’s so smooth she’ll slow down and ride with me!

She’s moving music and mobile art.

She took my wheel and took my heart.

Did I say she's really good at changing "flats"?

You have taken one of my favorite ladies and made her so much more alluring. If Mona Lisa had a bicycle, Leonardo would have had one heck of a time painting her while trying to follow her with a canvas mounted on his bike, water sloshing and oil paints splattering her image into an abstract.

LOL~~~Great Pictorial Hub. ~~~MFB III

This is so funny! I published this yesterday.

There were no nibbles all night.

So a few this morning.

I go for a bike ride and on my return I'm over-whelmed with comments.

This reminds me of the bicycle business.

To drum up business - order a pizza!

When that pizza gets delivered to the store people will come buy something!

Maybe "you can't have your cake or pie and eat it too!"

Thank you very much MFB. I now have a vision of Leo riding while he paints!

Thank you Akirchner! You can find anything in cyber-world.

Yes Shalini Kagal -"the faces and moods of Mona". There are some pretty clever folks with some great computer programs! Thank you!

Thank you zzron! I'm glad you had a good time.

She certainly looks natural in whatever clothes she had on, except as Mr Bean and a couple of others.

Hi, Mickey, I forgot to mention a really interesting but bizarre 'fact' about the Mona Lisa. According to new research, done by scientists blah blah etc, evidently they now seem to think that the mona lisa was in fact leonardo da vinci himself! when they looked at his original paintings of himself, he looked like her, so they checked out the facial recognition thingy, and lo and behold, it was him! crafty sod, aint he? lol also they did the same on the Turin Shroud and they think that was him as well! so there you go, waddya think of that then? weird!

Hi Micky - Not many people could read this with out a smile. Except maybe the lady herself. I think you have solved a mystery - looking at the picture of the Mona Lisa walking on the beach with her shores in her hand - she looks much happier than in the original. Now I know why she was not smiling for her portrait, her new shoes were too painful.

Lots of work went into this, you earn all the good comments you get, well done.
