rabbit

(1/31/99)

First Place 


   in and out
   of the morning mist
   rabbits
                      Alison Williams


Second Place 


   snowy garden~
   next to the Buddha statue
   a stone rabbit
                     soji


Third Place 


   scorched field
   tufts of rabbit fur
   dot the barbed wire
                        Ferris

   the fog has left
   rabbit droppings
   on the lawn
                Dennis H. Dutton

stillness:
after the shotgun blast
a rabbit
            ebj


hind legs outstretched
the rabbit relaxes
in afternoon sun
                  ~cindy bene


in the warming sun
the rabbit chewing parsley
the old man raking
                    Theresa Koenke
canyon mist
the creek's reflection
in the rabbit's eyes
                     ==Leanne
my daughter's bed
each time I look -
more rabbits

she counts the days
until the cheque arrives-

rabbits in the garden
last year two

rabbit tracks
across the snowy yard
to bare ground

the rabbit -
waiting in stillness
as I pass

Rabbit's foot,
torn lottos, and wastebasket-
by the couch.

between chicken cages
a motionless rabbit

jogger at rest
with rabbit-ear antennae;
eating a carrot
                  Joseph Kirschner
flock of geese
overhead
the rabbit slips away
                      -Carolyne
leading
to the edge of melting snow
-- rabbit tracks

her fur coat was made
from 1975 - 1987
and some older rabbits

a rabbit's foot abandoned
in the gutter

hanging from the keyring
in a wrecked car

a rabbit foot hangs
from the rear-view mirror-

half way across the yard --

the grace of an Afghan hound
running down rabbits
