Daily Prompt – Original


On the job at The Gallup Organization

Like an artist’s sketch
Gaining form and substance
As time passes

Vague outlines with
Rough edges
Evolve well-defined silhouettes
Drawn by
Life experience’s hand

Once blank canvases
Take on hues
Of personalities
Vibrant or subdued

Fine lines at the corners
Of eyes and mouth
Etched by cumulative
Joy and sorrow

Nuances of character
Painstakingly filled in
Year after year
Stroke by stroke

A work in progress
First breath
To last

Each portrait
