bridge

(8/22/99)

_________First Place__________


a swan's wake -
the lap of small waves
under the bridge

Alison Williams
 ________Second Place________


A moonless night;
under the bridge --
only water.

penny


 _________Third Place_________
    

under the bridge
the sound of doves -
cool water

_________Below Third Place________
bridging
the crowded party room
our glances

swinging  bridge
                            an autumn  leaf
                                                       zigzags
                                             zigzags

the full moon

suspension bridge
hummingbirds rest on the rail --
where did they come from?
