canoe

(8/31, 1998)

First Place 


   wavering
   in the canoe's wake
   autumn moon
                -ito


Second Place 


   still pond -
   a canoe's paddle
   scatters the clouds
                        Tom Genovese


   waterfall...
   on our shoulders
   the canoe
              Hugh Waterhouse


Third Place 


   moonlit sky --
   adrift in their canoe
   counting stars
                   Betty

   
BELOW THIRD PLACE 


   heavy silence --
   the canoe scrapes across
   an unseen rock
                    A.C. Missias


       fore and aft
       seals eye
       the canoe
                 ebj


           rotting canoe
           in the shallows of a pond
           lotus blossoms
                           Joe Kirschner


              canoe portage
              in the half-lit gorge -
              old footprints
                               Paul MacNeil


                  guiding the canoe
                  into the murky cove -
                  mating dragonflies
                                      Tim Happel


                      silently, among
                      cypress knees, a watersnake
                      and a canoe
                                   Charles Trumbull


   laughter
   from the river bank
   ~a tipped canoe
                    annie delaney


       trickles of sunlight
       through tangled boughs
       canoe's unhurried passage
                                  Sue


            overcast day
            the lifeguard paddles
            a red canoe
                         Joann


                  evicted -
                  another canoe overturned
                  in the rapids
                                 Alison Williams


                       swell of buttocks
                       at front of canoe -
                       paddling on my mind
                                             R. W. Richardson


   drifting canoe
   worm on a leaf
   river flows-

              moonlighted canoe-
              a wingclosed butterfly
              on the silver body
                                  emile molhuysen


                  autumn leaves fall
                  on rack of stacked canoes
                  red and yellow on chipped green
                                                   Marie
