This is the first 1-7-1 poem I've read, and it makes me want to try the form. Your interpretation is quite dramatic and the picture and title reinforce the subject perfectly. Best wishes in the contest and have a serene weekend- Joan

I like your poem. It sends a strong message, very thought provoking.
Those "strangers", kids are so trusting and vulnerable. They feed on their vulnerability.
Best of in the contest.

Whoa, Linda,

That's a difficult challenge!
That syllable count with a repeating
word in lines one and three.

I thank you for putting out such a
strong message in such a short
piece that makes an impacting
message and case for the
protection of children.

Bless you,

Linda

Tears...

This is great advise, given in any number of words. You did it very well here, with less than ten. The image you posted with the poem is perfect for your message.

Very well done indeed.

Thank you.

Hi
I like your very short poem with 1-7-1 syllables. Yet it has much more content in the message.
Children must run, or suffer at the hands of evil intentions.

Well done
Mary

Strangers are feared, but death comes from the ones we know. This is very well written with a smooth flow of words, making for a very good read.
