shadow

(5/25, 1998)

First Place 


   old pond
   the fallen leaf
   floats on its shadow
                         Donald McLeod


Second Place 


   no longer married
   only their shadows touch
   ... graduation day
                       roberta beary


Third Place 


   sunlight spilling
   over a red-tiled floor -
   the milk jug's shadow
                          Ferris


   late night jazz -
   among the shadows
   a white beard
                  norm jensen


BELOW THIRD PLACE 


     Buddha's shadow
     long and thin
     in afternoon light
                        Tom Williams


           tree shadow
           totally taken up
           by cows
                    Charles Trumbull


               all day long
               the sycamore's shadow -
               garden sundial
                              Tom Genovese


                    afternoon light
                    shadows of clay pots
                     across the wall
                                      kim


                       off to college-
                       waving near the mailbox
                       the willow's shadow
                                            neca


                            late night walk
                            alone with a stranger
                            moonshadow
                                        Andy


   shadowing
   his father's moves
   the little child
                     Sue


       full moon
       across the meadow
       the shadow of a barn owl
                                 hilary tann


             sun on the path....
             only his shadow
             touches her lips
                               Hugh Waterhouse


                 across the lawn
                 the tree's shadow:
                 slower than the slug
                                       ebj


                      stomping
                      the shadow
                      of the black fly
                                       -willard


                           a shadowed branch
                           behind dark magnolia leaves
                           the cardinal's chip
                                               Paul MacNeil


   a cold breeze
   fire coals suddenly bright
   surf behind shadow
                       Richard Gilbert


       from the shadows-
       the nighclub singer's
       cognac voice
                      Carolyne


           startled awake...
           a long shadow
           moves across the bed
                                 tina


                 the cat pounces
                 on a curtain shadow
                         summer breeze
                                       -acm


                       lying in the sun
                       my shadow
                       doing the same
                                       Kate Teresa Cassidy


   drying on a branch
   our colourless underwear
   shadow of the night
                       emile molhuysen


         baby rabbit - -
         jumps into the air
         kicking it's shadow
                              bill lerz


               on a sunlit tent
               tall grass
               juggles three butterflies

   as i leave my bed,
   i grow eight-feet tall ~~
   my shadow on the wall
                          Betty


        metal pole building
        hard-edged shadows
        where the old barn stood
                                  Mark Alan Osterhaus


             shadow replaced smile
             when she informed him
             they were through
                               soji
