John,
This can be true of the slinking, then attacking preditor, as in the artwork you chose. But, it can also be about any unexpected challenge in life. Every once in a while we get a feeling of deja vu which always brings shivers.
Good luck in the contest.
Keep writing and stay healthy
Joan

Lord,

This is a terrific entry for the contest. It seeks to express that sixth sense that warns us of the intangible and unexplainable danger that lurks . . . somewhere. Great job!

dejavu ==> deja vu (technically italicized because it is a foreign expression)

That was a lovely five line poem, and the picture is perfect for it, too. We have to look hard to see what is there, just like we would do if we were looking for those 'we aren't alone' shadows. I wonder if they really are out there!! I enjoyed your poem, my friend. Well done and good luck in the contest. :)) Sandra xxx

Eerie. You build up the suspense line by line engaging the senses, until the cryptic ending. The alliteration and consonance add to the overall effect. This tiny poem makes a powerful impact. Excellent work.

Stay safe and blessed, Julia

deja vu Yes, instincts are important . It is what we need to be aware of
Your poem seems to imply that we need to listen to our instincts and respond. WE need to recognize the danger , example putin, and not let the evil spread.
