Caught on Canvas

Faces etched in charcoal

On clean canvas sheets

Shades of gray

Lines, curves

Some roughly, some softly

Depicting expressions

Depicting real life, real feelings

The soul of man

Of woman

In the eyes, in the wrinkles,

In the moment

Always there,

Yet never the same

Captured on the paper

Gray smudges




Staring, glaring,

Not at me

At something, someone

Another time

A different day
