path

(5/16/99)

_________First Place__________

dark path...
the crunch
of beech nuts

Hugh Waterhouse


petals floating
towards their shadows
on the garden path

 ________Second Place________

forgotten path-
the stepping stones
green with moss

Yu Chang


 _________Third Place_________

muddy path -
pushing the pram
through long, wet grass

Timothy Collinson
_________Below Third Place________
spring meadow --
the dog traces circles
around my path

-acm
  
on the surface
of the stream -
a path of stars

Summer afternoon ~
walking the lakeside path
in a dragonfly cloud

woodland path
sitting with the child
to listen

following the path 
of least resistance
the wind

in a field 
of wildflowers
the moon finds a path

shadowed path -
the shape of your footprints
disappearing

blossom strewn path -
on a cold night
the milky way

the glint of the sun
along the path's edge
spiderwebs

ending abruptly
on the garden path-
slug's silvery trail

Sue

  
on the path
a maple leaf
rimed with frost

- Linda Robeck

  
mountain path
footprints facing both ways
at the fork

in the garden
the stone-set path rain-washed
rising scent of mint

the path ends
in swirls of sand ~
ocean sounds

The man came back
to show us his private path
to the museum

behind the barn
path to the nowhere
of my dreams

where on the map
the path continues
it here ends

fallen trees-
another path disappears
in the streambed

stone to stone
hops and giggles
garden path

it beckons
this mossy path
so I go

on the ancient path
I show my son what¹s left
of Route 66

their first Mother's Day -
petals on the path, from here
to maternity

woodland narrow path
purple violets --
sounds of the city
