Hurricane warning --
the boy boards up the windows
of the doghouse

 ________Second Place________


Eye of the hurricane;
breaking the silence
a sea bird's call.

hurricane winds
a child's beachball
bobs on the lake

still aglow
in the hurricane's eye
my small candle

crashing through the stillness

a motionless octopus

stirring the sea
this and that way

hurricane's eye -
on both sides of the street
shopkeepers hammering

hurricane hurling
wild cherries to the ground
seed for winter mice

boarding up
to the siren's wail -
hurricane alert

hurricane of leaves
bolting down the country road
stampede out of sight

in a hurricane's eye

tossing up peanuts -
