window

(10/12, 1997)


FIRST PLACE


             autumn breeze --
             the cat switches
             to a sunnier window
                                             -acm


SECOND PLACE


      window cleaning
      the ridged green belly
      of a grasshopper
                                 Jeanne Cassler


THIRD PLACE


     wiping steam 
     from the bathroom window--
     Mt Shasta
                     Martin Murillo


BELOW THIRD PLACE


      cleaning my window
      I see her more clearly
      than I should
                           charlie


            gray hazy morning --
            a street person primps herself
            in a store window
                                        Charles Trumbull


                  day after day
                  she clings to the window
                  stained glass butterfly
                                                        Carolyne


  wiping the fogged window
  her sleeve
  already wet
                     ken kuniyuki


       after our lovemaking -
       a bumble bee's tap
       on the window
                               Harold Bowes


              needing to pee
              through this open window
              the night breeze
                                         -willard


                    open window
                    owl softly hoots
                    at dusk
                                 Cindy Bene


                           diamonds sparkle~
                           hand in hand
                           they window-shop
                                                         Tailwind


  calendar
  by the open window
  a leaf blows in
                         paul m


       sparrow's nest
       in the log cabin
       broken window
                               Patricia A. Laurent


          drive-up window -
           the curve
            of the teller's back
                                           Hilary Tann


                coastal museum
                this wall of windows
                framing the sea
                                         Joann


  open window
  the dried flowers rustling
  in the breeze
                        kim


        full moon 
        in one window
        a smile 
                    - rien


              pale chameleon
              against the frosted window-
              pieces of the moon
                                              neca


     little hands and faces
     pressed against windows
     first snowfall
                           tina


          from the far window
          of his mind, he waves good-bye
          one last time
                                Peg Lowmiller


             wavy old windows -
             pure sky's perfect reflection;
             mine keeps changing
                                               Noor Singh Khalsa 


      Twilight
      in the window
      of each stranger's house
                                              Steve Rys


  hanging storm windows -
  a trapped spider traverses
  my dull reflection
                                Mark Alan Osterhaus


        squirrel and i
        peering through open window
        watching each other
                                         DeeDee
