I read in some places women walk as much as eight miles every day to fetch water clean enough to drink. If you've ever hauled water, it's a difficult task as it is, but apparently those eight miles are also fraught with great danger. Your use of this form for such an important message is so commendable! What a great choice of topic, and the words you chose are wonderfully touching.

    This is so sad and unfortunate. We that live in the land of plenty have no concept of this. The poor woman probably has to dodge rapists and thieves just to get water. I thank you for sharing your comments and thought provoking thoughts. Also, many thanks for the excellent review! It's greatly appreciated!

This poem matches the contest entry perfectly and had so much meaning behind it. The picture you chose to go along with it helps define that meaning even more. Thanks for sharing and good luck!

This is an exceptional poem. You took the subject, used the right words and reminded us of a very real truth. I pray that everyone can help the people who just want a good drink of water. That seems to be our birthright.

The words alone tug at one's heart, let alone the picture. Together they tell an all too true picture of what life is like for some of God's children. Although the situation is sad your the thought was beautifully conveyed.

The picture is heart wrenching and your words hit hard. Excellent job! We take too much for granted and waste so much. And no matter how dirty that water looks, he is so grateful for just a sip. No child should ever have to do without the necessities for life. GOD Bless the children.

GOD Bless you Jeffrey :)

Touches the heart and fills it with truth and longing and love. You did a remarkable job with this little piece. It speaks thousands of words in only a few. Very nicely done. I would award thousands of stars if I only could. Good luck!

Three short lines that hit home. And the artwork was perfect. No one with a heart would be able to deny the feelings your poem evoked. Thank you for reminding us not to look away.

Nicely done and hits the spot. Good photo to accompany it too. Good that someone highlights the issue of clean water which is a serious problem in many parts of the world.

Your poem addresses one of the more urgent issues of the day. It is easy to take for granted easy access to clean, fresh drinking water, but there are many who must struggle for this basic necessity.
