duckling/gosling

(5/25, 1998)

First Place 


   sudden wind --
   a jumble of ducklings
   bumps the shore
                   -acm


Second Place 


   wind here and there -
   by the stone bench
   gosling prints
                  paul m


Third Place 


   eddies
   under the stone bridge -
   a duckling's peep
                     norm jensen


BELOW THIRD PLACE 


     quiet pond
     the gosling brood now
     numbers two
                  Joann


         iridescent green
         the gosling asleep
         in a flower pot
                          Harold


             Goose prods
             a lifeless gosling -
             April rain.
                           Moura


                  spring's end -
                  the school crossing guard waits
                  for the last duckling
                                        Tom Genovese


   gray goslings
   small mouths wide open
   to the sun
               Tom Williams


        an arrowhead wake
        points a lone duckling
        at the sunset
                       Andy


             distant thunder...
             behind mother's wake
             duckling's first swim

                  a gosling's path
                  into the marsh
                  trackless
                             Mark Alan Osterhaus


                      warmth of the egg
                      pressed to my ear...
                      the gosling peeps
                                        Ferris


                           breeze across
                           the marsh grass
                           glimpse of ducklings
                                                 kim


   marsh reeds -
   a redhead
   and ducklings in tow
                        -ito


      quiet water;
      a duckling in a hurry
      ripples the surface
                           tormoda


           pigeons shadow
           six young ducklings
           scurry for cover
                             soji


                out of the pond --
                the ducklings waddle
                to her bread in hand
                                     Betty


                     one deep inhalation -
                     the duckling
                     in high speed to mama
                                           emile molhuysen


       patient mallard hen - -
       at last the ugly duckling
       jumps into the pond
                            bill lerz
