Masterpiece in my Garage

Recently PBS and NatGeo did a special program on a possible Leonardo DaVinci discovery. The portrait on vellum (calf skin) was verified to be 16th century work and probably Italian. The image of a young woman could be worth $100M just because it may be from Da Vinci’s hand. Another masterpiece from humbler linage sits in my garage. But not always….


Forgotten princess of Renaissance conforms,

Da Vinci’s work and toil defines her form;

But colder color clashes hard on chrome at home,

While silently my v-twin rests for running, and to roam.


The beauty with her details fine and pure,

Flesh colors and the shading; proof is sure-

But my garage confines a beauty just as true,

Long, low lines and sleekness colored blue.


Wealth untold for her on vellum meek-

A muted portrait flat that millions seek,

But riding with acceleration hard-

Transcends in splendor down life’s boulevard.
