pebble

(3/29, 1998)

 

 

First Place 


   between her fingers
   one pebble
   eclipses the moon 
                     -willard


Second Place 


   shucking knife
   in the oyster's gray folds
   a white pebble
                  Paul MacNeil


Third Place 


   damp matchbox-
   a few blue pebbles
   cling to the goldfish
                         Joann


BELOW THIRD PLACE 


   dawn lake 
           a pebble's throw away
           the full moon
                         paul m


     no worry beads-
     just this pebble 
     in my pocket
                 Cindy Zackowitz


        deepening the sound
        of pebbles in the stream,
        morning's first birdcall
                                 Tom Genovese


              pebble cross--
              old bitch whining
              at the puppies' grave
                                    neca


                   colored pebbles
                   in the goldfish bowl --
                   the fish swim 'round and 'round 
                                                   Betty


   labour
             day
                   at 
                       the 
                             lake
                                    skipping 
                                                 stones
                                                            with 
                                                                   dad
   tina


     on the windowsill
     a row of pebbles
     gathering dust
                     andy


           the story of that pebble
           on the bookshelf
           in her heart
                       Steve Rys


                 autumn in Egypt --
                 the Sphinx
                 sheds a pebble
                                Donald McLeod


   around the pebble,
   dandelion stem
   curving
           Harold


     temple gate --
     on the cross bar
     a row of pebbles
                      AC Missias


            casting pebbles
            into the sea
            at midnight
                        norm jensen


                  between each groyne
                  the rasping of pebbles
                  at turn of the tide
                                      Matt


                          looking back
                          for someone to lean on
                            - pebble in my shoe
                                                 doris kasson


                                     river scents trickle
                                     from a small chamois bag -
                                     a handful of pebbles
                                                          Ferris


   in his treasure chest.
   from some now-forgotten beach,
   a smooth red pebble
                       Charles Trumbull


       waters of spring ~
       collecting pebbles
       new to the stream
                         bill lerz


           park fountain -
           in rust-tasting water
           a pebble tumbles
