Character Sketch I

Childhood                                                                                                                                           A little boy with imploring, hazel eyes, looks out from the photograph. He’s hurt, not in physical pain, lonesome in his heart.

Later                                                                                                                                                    A young man, wearing coveralls, is mopping the floor. He stores his bucket and mop in a closet. He enters a room. A man in a uniform closes the door behind him. Hazel eyes peer out through the bars, an illustration of futility.

    These character sketches are good. Really, really good. In fact, you could turn any one of them into a novel, a short story, a play, a poem — they took my breath away! Thanks!
