fountain

(10/4, 1998)

First Place 


   full moon-
   the courtyard fountain
   dripping stars
                    Carolyne


Second Place 


   summer sun -
   seeping into the flagstones
   the fountain's shadow
                           Harold


Third Place 


   wiping my glasses -
   yesterday this fountain
   trickled
             doris kasson

   
BELOW THIRD PLACE 


   autumn chill --
   in the fountain
   a mossy stone
                  -acm


       bottles
       in the fountain -
       no messages
                     Hugh Waterhouse


           bronze fountain -
           green patina flows from
           one clamshell to another
                                     Paul MacNeil


              glinting in the fountain -
              copper-colored wishes
                                     norm jensen


                  brisk spring wind
                  blows the sound of the pines
                  into the fountain
                                     Charles Trumbull


                      lizard
                      ripple in
                      the dry fountain

                          a child's ball
                          sits amongst the leaves
                             empty fountain
                                          Gary Steinberg


   empty fountain
   still
   filled with wishes

      slow trickle...
      the fountain spray
      cools my cheek
                      Joann


         summer's end
         waiting for rain
         to fill the fountain

            in the drops
