frost

(12/6, 1998)

First Place 


   hot jazz
   in the Unicorn Cafe--
   frosted windows
                    Joseph Kirschner


Second Place 


   morning frost -
   deer tracks still visible
   across the lawn
                    hilary tann


Third Place 


   first frost
   a myrtle warbler hops
   rock to rock to rock
                         Joann

   
BELOW Third PLACE 


   this morning
   in the boulder's shadow,
   the lingering frost
                        Rob Krevitz


       afternoon sun -
       a patch of frost lingers
       in the fence's shadow
                               Cindy


          first night frost
          a thin mirror floats
          fragile on the lake
                               CoKa


             a barbwire fence
             sparkling in moonlight
             frost on the nettles
                                  Ferris


                 frosty night-
            my breath more visible
                 with every word
                                   Kelly Donlan


                     first frost
                     a sprinkler head
                     crowned with ice
                                       paul m


                          sunlight
                          on frost
                          dissolving
                                       Tom Williams


                              left out
                              in the frost
                              crisp sheets
                                             Hugh Waterhouse


   empty park:
   on the wooden benches
   the first frost
                --Dimitar Anakiev


     moonlit dusk -
     picking green tomatoes
     before first frost
                         Elsie Canfield


         just at sunrise -
         a fine edge of frost
         glints on each leaf
                                Alison Williams


             killing frost:
             the crackle of our footsteps
             across the yard
                               Charles Trumbull


                neglected friend
                frost on the walkway
                between houses
                                 Carolyne


                     first frost
                     a few stray oak leaves
                     float in the pool
                                         ~Susan Watkins


                         early morning
                         frost covers the barn
                         mist rises
                                      Patricia A. Laurent


                              another night
                              sleeping alone
                              her frosty glare
                                                charlie


   curled in a blanket,
   tracing lacey snowflakes...
   frost on the window
                         Betty


      november morning
      pondering Frost's snowy woods --
      if it's still standing
                               Elaine Cleveland


         killing frost
         wrapping my old slippers
         with duct tape
                          Dennis H. Dutton


             scraping windshields
             already this season
             first frost
                          ~cindy bene


                tiny nails scraping
                bits of frost
                from window to floor

                        R. W. Richardson {c 12-01-98}


                   night frost
                   hands shaking in holey gloves
                   shimmer in cement

                         first frost-
                    on the windshield of every Ford
                         at junkyard
                                        Dani DeCaro
