firefly

(7/13, 1997)


FIRST PLACE


        above the embers
          fireflies
           and stars
                           Hilary Tann


SECOND PLACE


         nightfall
         filling the front lawn
         children and fireflies
                                             Joann


THIRD PLACE


     sticky heat ~
     the flash of a firefly
     lingering
                    Mark Alan Osterhaus


BELOW THIRD PLACE


   cry of a loon
   the flicker of fireflies-
   still water
                     Bob


        on the porch railing
        a glass of ginger ale
        a jar of fireflies
                                   Doug


                oh look!
                gone
                firefly
                           Maleti (Mary Lee Mcclure)


   almost dusk-
   fireflies in the meadow
   light their lamps
                                Patricia A. Laurent


          still thinking of her
          fireflies in and out of
          the dead honeysuckle
                                              Yu Chang


             dusk
             across the meadow
             fireflies rising up
                                           paul m


   dark lake
   full moon shards
   fireflies
                 Joe kirschner


         sometimes behind me
         sometimes ahead -
         through woods with a firefly
                                                        gilles fabre


softly blinking 
    fireflies
        too many to count tonight
                                                   Norm Jensen


   little one's lantern shatters -
   flight of fireflies	
                                Harry


        Fireflies and 
        meteors dart through
        starry darkness
                                  -- Margarita Drozdoff


   her tiny whisper
   is it Tinkerbell?
   - first firefly	
                          Ferris


         she laughs
         dancing with the stars
         the fireflies
                             Ted M. Zachwieja


              light dims
              in a glass jar
              fireflies
                             ken kuniyuki


   Fireflies rise
   with the mist,
   frog song
                   Peg Lowmiller


      on this dark nite
      no shadow from bare limbs
      no firefly
                      Zoned Cat


  mountain night walking
  light glowing light firefly light
  a child's hands open
                                   Edwin


       firefly
       on the kitchen sink;
       escapee
                    -Pardee Gunter
