Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

Leonardo Da Vinci combined art and science and aesthetics and engineering, that kind of unity is needed once again.

I was being an artist, being sensitive and technical as artists are. I'm sure Leonardo Da Vinci did that. Artists don't always feel the same as others feel about their work.

Sight - Sound - Smell

Picaso, Monet, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Botticelli, and da Vinci
Each piece of art, worth years of work
The focus of their art, Beauty on Earth
The value of their work is well known
The origin of their work, is little known

The Da Vinci Code

men are God's signatures
criss crossing this plane
every signature spews a life
that smiles with the stamp
of his individuality, orignal
as finger prints and tells a
story that includes you, me
and a da vinci code to help
us find our way the holy signatory

Barbara Walters

I found it interesting that as people become more technically oriented all over the world, at the same time people are becoming increasingly spiritual. The success of the Da Vinci code - even though it was a great yawn - also showed people's interest in religion.

Orson Welles

In Italy for thirty years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love; they had five hundred years of democracy and peace and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock.

Music's Worth To Me

music to me is my heart
as piccaso and da vinci to art
music can manipulate my every emotion
music to me is an iner promotion

music gives me a sense of self worth
music is the one thing why i dont regret birth
without music we have no life
to imagine a world without music
hurts like the blade of a knife

Art Encompassed

Michelangelo carved poetry
into purest marble
painted it across ceiling
of adorned Sistine Chapel.

Leonardo Da Vinci
cunningly imprisoned it
within magnetic eyes
of portrait Mona Lisa.

Vincent Van Gogh ground pigment
mixed fresco artistic paint
then splashed poetry upon heaven’s
eternal Starry Starry Night.

I quickly realized that this medium had a lot to offer someone like me. To do Disney-quality hand-drawn cartoons, you have to be a master of two art forms. Seriously, you have to be able to draw like a Leonardo da Vinci or a Michelangelo. But also you have to know movement and timing and control that through 24 frames a second.

Dan Brown Declared He Is Not Anti-Christian?

read agenda mud lark muddling American writer
who wove thriller fiction into dark dirty history
Lucifer declared himself to be an angel of light

Dan Brown declared he is not anti-Christian
no he is on a sham 'constant spiritual journey'
his travesty 'The Da Vinci Code' is simply

'an entertaining story that promotes
spiritual discussion and debate'
eat as an apple of Brown's mockery

Brown suggests his gay tale may be used
'as a positive catalyst for introspection
and exploration of our faith' as recreated

Brown's preface claim in 'The Da Vinci Code'
avows ' all descriptions of artwork, architecture,
documents and secret rituals in novel are accurate.'

Respect the Arts

Revere the arts standing on pillar and wing.
Moves of Longfellow, da vinci, Mozart fashioning
in a misty past, a marvelous cast, who dug the
trenches and flowered the path.Their bodies of
work streamed the portal for future artists
and their creations.A foundation still solid
though time tortured may the realness live on
through student and teacher.Look.listen and
feel through it's beauty and rebound the
simplistic, fine things in life.

Valentine 2009

If I could paint a masterpiece
In portrait show my lady’s grace
As da Vinci in his finest hour
Attained in Mona Lisa’s face

If I could write a sonnet grand
In poem show my lady’s soul
That to the eyes of all who read
Rapturous tears would freely flow

If I could achieve these shining feats
Though great, sufficient would not be
To reveal the love that’s in my heart
Or impart my lady’s worth to me

I love you Babe

Cheshire Smile

(with apologies to Leonardo da Vinci)

What is it with the Cheshire Cat
and that confounding smile
That so beguiled me long ago as a child
Unlike Mona Lisa's, it remains a mystery
Between the Cheshire Cat
And now the grown-up me

What is it about that maddening
maddening! smile
After all these years
After all this time...

© 2009 Sonya Florentino


(the Cheshire Cat is a character in Lewis Carroll's book 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, ' a book that has made a lasting impact on me more than any other book read as a child)

Immortal Grace {The Da Vinci Ode}

In the portrait you see
years of legacy,
an artisans treasure
of full bountied measure.
Each dove feathered stroke
flecks a virtuous scope
of immortal grace -
on this eloquent face.
And her aura surrounds
the breadth that abounds
from the eyes that explore
as they follow yours.
Should you study her pose
you may fall self-engrossed
in her soft, subtle smile,
a hint of beguile-
'cross her lips quivered ripple,
meticulous stipple.
And with haunting expression
such stoic impression

LIKE A Da VINCI

Come, become my mirror to read the backward. Script
wards have failed me.
The sea is turbulent
and I am laying flowers at your feet.

What was is your eyes
unfathomable like a da Vinci?
Hold my trembling hands
I am going to dropp the gems.

Nobody will agree with me
there was a face on the wall.
Bare as the night moon of October
I have undone my beliefs.

A loincloth was sufficient to hide the birth.
Ceremony has begun to knead the lies.
Use your death as the furnace of life
where knives are sharpened to start the healing.
A stranger has come as the guest of the house

A New Pilgrimage: Sonnet XXXII

To--day I was at Milan, in such thought
As pilgrims bring who at faith's threshold stand,
Still burdened with the sorrows they have brought,
And vexed with stranger tongues in a strange land.
And lo, this sign was given me. At my hand
Hung that mysterious supper Vinci wrought
With the sad twelve who were Christ's chosen band,
A type of vows and courage come to nought.
And, while I gazed, with a reproachful look
The bread was broken and the wine was poured,
And the disciples raised their hands and spoke,
Each asking ``Is it I? and I too? Lord!''
And there was answered them this mournful cry:
``All shall abandon me to--night.'' So I.
