Grainy Photos

Actually a rondolet

Grainy photos
On milk cartons of missing kids
Grainy photos
In the hopes that somebody knows
Where they are now and who they're with
Parents prayers enclosed within
Grainy photos

    Hi again Susan :D Yes, those photos of missing persons really make me wonder and hope for the best for them and their families-- congrats on your win for this write and also on your other poems-- I think your repeating line of "grainy photos" is effective--as for your question about PFT, I do receive comments from non-Soup people...I hope that it is the same with you?

    Enjoyed reading this one..Yes, I used to see those photos in Wal-Mart..I have never ever seen a child that I thought might fit one of the children though...Great topic on which to write..If for a contest, reads like a winner to me..Thanks for stopping by, reading, and commenting on my work..The poem "Fib" is written in a form that I found called "Fib"..It is about telling a fib and how it grows First one lie then another and another..Sara
