clouds

(4/6 , 1997)



FIRST PLACE


     cool rush
     from the blackening clouds -
     a tub of berries
                                   Laura Young


SECOND PLACE


         one by one
         the stars disappear...
         unseen clouds
                                     - Jim Mullins


THIRD PLACE


            the sway of her ponytail
            as she rounds the bases
            rising clouds
                                     Joann1125


BELOW THIRD PLACE


  cloudy night 
  the stars disappear
  in her eyes
                         Yu Chang


     thin clouds
     veil full moon--
     wedding day
                              Joe Kirschner


           cloudless sky
           above parched earth
           one crow
                              Hilary Tann


   clouds
   wave
   in my teacup
                            Noor Singh Khasla


  rain forest
  high above the clouds
  tree frogs chirp
                                 ken kuniyuki


       clouds and shadows
       of clouds
       cross the city
                                   -willard


cream clouds the coffee bitter we calculate each silence

                 Susan Stanford


  on those distant hills
  heather might be blooming-
  purple March clouds
                                       paulus the woodgnome


     clouds linger-
     head deep in water
     a jonquil
                       Neca 


       with our backs
       to earth, watching clouds -
       she giggles
                               -Loran


           dark clouds slip quickly
           below billows of white-
           approaching storm
                                              Alan Realey


     corpulent grub clouds   
     consuming the distant trees
     caterpillar sky
                                  Michael J. Peterson
