cold night

(1/3,99)

First Place 


   cold night
    the stars
   where I left them
                      Hugh Waterhouse


Second Place 


   cold night
   room for only one star
   in the pond
                paul m


Third Place 


   cold night
   I watch my breath
   fill with stars
                    Rob Krevitz


   
BELOW Third PLACE
trembling on the tree...
the last leaf
cold night
           Betty
  
cold night-
the twin beds
farther apart
              jean king


        cold night moon -
        over ice-capped rocks
        the river's gleam
                           Harold


           cold night
           on the front porch
           our breaths mingle
                                Sue


               cold night -
               the snowstorm paperweight
               on a drift of bills
                                     Alasdair Paterson


cold night -
the wind from the east
even colder
              norm jensen


    cold night--
    the willow
    rattling
               Tom Williams


       on either side
       of the frost-flowered panes
       such a cold night
                          Max Verhart


           crescent moon
           low in the sky
           cold night
                      Patricia A. Laurent


             cold night,
             her feet
             even colder
                          Charlie Rossiter


                 cold night -
                 bare maple branch scraping
                 against the shingles
                                       Tim Happel


puddles -
a cold night
fractures the moon
                     Matt


    a cold bitter night
    she searches for a shelter
    that allows children
                          Carolyn


       cold night
       the lowing of cows
       no comfort
                    Dennis H. Dutton


            wood fire crackling
            throughout this cold night
            mice in the walls
                               Ferris


                only    
                the siren's fading wail
                - cold night
                              bill k.


cold night sparks
warm thoughts of love
--what follows is joy
                        Jim Morrison


   rainy cold night
   empty branches
   knocking at my window
                          emile molhuysen


      sky shattered
      in a million silver shards
      cold cold night
                       Don Wharram


          bitter cold night
          he hugs his coffee cup:
          crescent moon
                         Joe Kirschner


              useless now
              his bedside manner
              - cold night
                           doris kasson


                  across the lake
                  someone's shutter banging
                  through this cold night
                                           Charles Trumbull


clear cold night
stargazing between
puffs of breath
                  R. W. Richardson {12-28-98}


    cold night
    even the stars are
    hugging

       cold night ~
       crescent moon cradles
       Jupiter
                Elsie Canfield


           cold december night -
           small groups of people
           heading for a church
                                 Ted M. Zachwieja


               cold night
               bare branches scraping the sky --
               blue inside and out
                                   Elaine Cleveland


                    sourdough pancakes
                    rising near the stove
                    cold night
                                  Pardee
