First Place 


   winter sun
   the ice sculptor
   starts to sweat

Second Place 


   winter sun --
   each ice crystal
   a prism
          hilary tann


Third Place 


   Winter sun
   lying in the warmth
   where you lay
                Paul Noble


   Winter sunset -
   only the sound of my snow shoes
   on the mountain trail
                        Margarita


BELOW THIRD PLACE 


     
   cold water
   at the hole's bottom
   winter sun
             paul m


       ripping back
       the orange's skin -
       a glimpse of winter sun

              pieces of itself
              on the choppy river -
              winter sun

                     Against my training,

                     a pale winter sun
                                      Tom Williams


                            pale winter sun -
                            even my shadow
                            shivers
                                   Tom Genovese


                                     bringing home
                                     a bouquet of daffodils
                                     - winter sun

     champagne -
     cut crystal gathers
     the winter sun
                   Paul MacNeil


             winter sun -
             glints of koi scales
             in the pond
                        -ito


                     winter sun -
                     shadow of plum blossoms
                     projected on the wall
                                          Emile Molhuysen


                            a red silo
                            surrounded by unbroken snow --

   clothes out to dry
   frozen

                    winter sun -

                                           Harold


                            ray of winter sun
                            on one corner of the rug

                                      the hammock's still shadow

   in buds touched by the
   winter sun

            winter sun setting
            lone pine on the snowy field
            filters the red glow

                    in the winter sun
                    dark stones on the window ledge ...
                    thinking old thoughts
                                         Charles Trumbull

                                    the winter sun rides

   in winter sun
