evening
(autumn)

(10/12, 1997)


FIRST PLACE


       evening breeze --
       in and out of sunlight
                falling leaves
                                       -acm


SECOND PLACE


      evening chill
      in with the dog
       ....scent of burnt leaves
                                                        Joann


THIRD PLACE


     autumn evening--
     her plate of oysters
     still untouched
                             charlie rossiter


BELOW THIRD PLACE


      evening foghorn
      crowding aboard
      the last ferry
                             paul m


            first cold evening
            over the windchimes
            a stranger's knock
                                          roberta beary


                an evening stroll-
                my elderly neighbor
                still raking leaves 
                                               Martin Murillo


                   coming down the path
                   with the autumn evening-
                   his step so slow
                                             neca stoller


  autumn evening -
  before the sway of the trees
  the sound of the wind
                                     Tom Genovese


       harvest festival -
        evening sunlight strikes
         the steeple bells
                                     Hilary Tann


               evening at the bog
               floating ... floating
               cranberries and stars
                                                  Steve Rys


                   October evening
                   the homeless man
                   croons Silent Night
                                                   Charles Trumbull


  wild geese
  resting in the tall reeds
  October evening
                              ken kuniyuki


       autumn evening
       the mountains fade
       against the sky
                                kim


            evening 
            in the empty orchard 
            still sparrows  
                                  - rien


        evening stroll;
        nutmeg and tortilla smells
                                                   Joe Kirschner


  evening faces 
  on the porch
  candlelit pumpkins
                                 Carolyne


        as evening descends,
        red, orange and gold leaves
        blend into the sunset
                                           tina


  ghosts, ghouls, short legged beasties
  leering pumpkins destined for pies
  All Hallow Evening
                                R. Marie Stutts


      the yellow flicker
      from the jack-o-lantern
      welcomes the evening
                                          Carolyn


               swallows
                         flying south
                 over the evening rush
                                                     Hugh Waterhouse


           turning leaves frame
           crimson sunsets...
           evening glory
                                 Tailwind


     cool evening light -
     squinting to see
     barren black-eyed susans
                                                Mark Alan Osterhaus


              early evening sun
              intensifies the crimson
              of a lone maple
              -- 
                                        Pardee


      early evening stroll
      along the tree lined street
      colorful leaves fall
                                     DeeDee 


 in the evening sun
 fawns munching crabapples,
 scarlet maples                                             
                         Peg Lowmiller


          evening comes
          earlier this month
          pumpkins for sale
