plow

(5/18, 1997)



FIRST PLACE


        plowing through
        heavy morning fog-
        the bull's sharp horns
                                               Neca Stoller


SECOND PLACE


         ox drawn plow -
         my shattered image
         in the rice paddy
                                         Yu Chang


THIRD PLACE


     rolling fields
     behind the horse-drawn plow
              his Amish hat
                                        -acm


          scent of rain
          sweeping over plowed earth
          this year's hopes
                                          Ferris


BELOW THIRD PLACE


   sinking sun -
   the tractor pulls the plow
   through its own tracks
                                             Laura Young 


       stag beetle
       plowing through the leaves
       bumps a rock
                                 Paul MacNeil  


          spring planting -
                  gnarled roots
                          catch the plow    
                                                      doris k. 


   rusted plow...
   taped to a coffee can-
   pumpkins fifty cents
                                         Joann 


        farmer's young son
        ploughing 
        in his father's footsteps
                                                    Carolyne


              high tide -
              small turtles plow
              back to the sea
                                            Hilary Tann 


        dust raised
        the horse plow and man 
        emerge
                         -willard


                    he drew in the dust
                    on tractor's fender
                    how to plow this field
                                                            Harold Bowes


   country graveyard --
   alongside, a tractor
   plowing furrows
                                  Charles Trumbull


         following the plough -
         the sea breeze balmier
         than yesterday
                                      Sue Stanford
