strewn leaves

(11/15, 1998)

First Place 


   strewn leaves
   the smooth, cold feel
   of a skipping stone
                        ~Susan Watkins



   the patter of rain
   on wind strewn leaves
   miles from home
                    Alison Williams


Second Place 


   strewn leaves -
   tumbling deeper into
   the hammock's sag
                      Harold


Third Place 


   quiet pond -
   sunken leaves strewn
   in the shallows
                    Paul MacNeil

   
BELOW THIRD PLACE 


   strewn leaves
   the cat avoiding
   each one
                     Carolyne


      leaf-strewn
      bottom of the fountain
      a few new coins
                       Timothy Russell


          in strewn leaves
          a white rose petal
          from the bride's bouquet
                                    Joann


              midnight gust -
              strewn leaves whisper
              past the door
                              Ferris


                    country market -
                    between the stalls
                    a leaf-strewn path
                                         hilary tann


                         behind him
                         in strewn leaves -
                         a path
                                   R.W.Richardson {c 10-16-98}


   mushrooms
   all about
   strewn leaves
                  ebj


       strewn leaves
       stirring by a culvert
       coiled rattler
                      Tim Happel


          a leaf strewn
          with his torn picture
          floating down the brook
                                   Betty


                 strewn leaves --
                 following the kittens
                 all over the house
                                      - hortensia anderson


                     rain all night
                     on the concrete cracks
                     strewn leaves
                                    -ito


                              yesterday
                              the color of sunset
                              strewn leaves
                                             Rob Krevitz


                                      fall storm
                                      strewn leaves reflecting
                                      lightning
                                                  pardee


   strewn leaves -
   my old teacher seems
   to like them less than I do
                                Horst Ludwig


       as gardeners depart
       a sudden windstorm;
       strewn leaves
                      Joe Kirschner


           next to the window
           picture of my parents home
           strewn leaves
                          --dimitar


                after the storm
                leaves strewn
                across the walk
                                 ~kujira 


                  leaves strewn
                  bundled children
                  in the yard
                                paul m


                     crouched at the top
                     of leaf strewn brick steps
                     calico cat
                                  soji


                          damp green park
                          a mat of wind strewn leaves ~
                          his coat pulled tighter
                                                    tc


                               raking done,
                               leaves strewn by a gust ~
                               starting over
                                              Dennis H. Dutton


   Feet trampling through
   damp fall colors-
   strewn leaves.
                    Lynn Rosemary Toennessen


       way past midnight:
       shapes and shadows of strewn leaves
       in the window light
                            Charles Trumbull


           strewn leaves
           back to the surgeon
           lump is gone

                brown toadstools
                in the leaf-strewn grass~
                the blood-red sun
                                   Sue


                     strong autumn wind blows
                     crows and yellow leaves strewn
                     patterning the field
                                           Elaine Cleveland
