sleepless night

(6/21, 1998)

First Place 


   sleepless night -
   my socks in small piles
   across the floor
                     Harold


Second Place 


   sleepless night
   bringing her ice water
   once again
               Jim Mullins


Third Place 


   sleepless night
   again I count
   my newborn's toes
                      Joann



BELOW THIRD PLACE 


   sleepless night-
   across the silent street
   a weeping violin
                      Sue


       sleepless night . . .
       how long it takes the moon
       to blink
                Timothy Russell


           sleepless night
           a ceiling crack
           in moonlight
                         paul m


                 2:57
                 I review my life
                 2:59

                     sleepless night . . .
                     moonlight drawing shadows
                     from my crumpled sheets
                                              Donald McLeod


   from husband to father
   short sleepless night-
   beautiful daughter
                      emile


       sleepless night-
       dead oak rustling
       with its trumpet vine
                              neca


         insomnia--
         jealous of every porch light
         going out
                    Tom Williams


             Sleepless --
             the time stares back at me
             from the nightstand
                                -- Margarita


                   sleepless night -
                   thinking about
                   thinking about nothing
                                          Marc S.


                         the blackbird too
                         fooled by the moon...
                         sleepless night
                                         Hugh Waterhouse


   sleepless night
   hearing key in door
   anger rises
               soji


      morning comes to soon
      bed holds me like a warm hug
      after sleepless night
                            wz


           not quite tired...
           battling insomnia
           with old physics text
                                 Hazel


              sleepless night -
              at every turn
              another 'what if...?'

                      tossing and turning --
                      the insomniac
                      gives her a sleepless night
                                                   Betty
