   breaking new spider webs
   to board the small boat

Second Place 


   Woodnotes 26
   between pages 4 and 5
   a pressed spider
                     Charles Trumbull


   in his web
   how still the spider
        lightning storm
                        -acm


   garden moonlight
   reflecting here and there
   in spider eyes
                   Ferris

   the stone gate;
   over that widening crack
   a spider web
                 Joseph Kirschner

   
BELOW THIRD PLACE 


   Buddha of Nara --
   a tiny spider web
   in the fold of his robe
                           Don


     stopping over
     in the spider's web
     dandelion seed
                     -ito


        from pulpit to pew -
        watching the spider
        spin his web
                      doris kasson


             no wind -
             hanging with the wind chimes
             a white spider
                             Harold


                  between panes
                  the spider clutches itself
                  to itself
                              Timothy Russell


                        morning light
                        a dead spider caught
                        in its own web
                                          Carolyne


   disused temple bell-
   delicate tracery
   of spiderwebs
                   Sue


      dawn in the alders
      a hummingbird steals
      the spider's gnats
                          Paul MacNeil


            dewpearls left the web
            spider awoke slowly
            lost son found way home
                                      emile molhuysen


                 kindergarten
                 little fingers
                 itsy bitsy spiders
                                     Betty


                      after surgery -
                      a spider dangles above
                      the sleeping patient
                                            Alan Realey
