The Artistry Of Life

Like an artist’s sketch
Gaining
Form and substance
As
Time passes

Vague outlines
With
Rough edges
Evolve into
Well defined
Silhouettes
Drawn by the hand
Of
Life experience

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

No
Two portraits
Identical

 

Inspired by Daily Prompt – Identical
