pool

(4/23/00)

_________First Place__________


in the stillness of the pool
              one fish
                     one shadow

Eric Houck, Jr.

 
 ________Second Place________


tidal pool
a snail descends
into the moon

 _________Third Place________
    

deeper
than the pool
the moon

_________Below Third Place________

  
rippling the surface
of the black mountain pool 
the mayfly's wings

pounding waves-
a tiny crab slips
into the tide pool

pool of sun--
three dusty sparrows
playing tag

in the pool 
swimming freely...
her wheelchair parked

 a pool of blood
between two hemlocks
   partridge feathers

stillness ...  
     blossom here and there  on the pool

my desk
a pool of ink 
kitten tracks

rock pool -
behind the beaded seaweed
a starfish

forest pool
reflecting also the sound
of a stone

in the centre of a pool
the old scarecrow
protects a goldfish

spring mist
floating in the aqua pool 
mosquito larvae

"Drowning hazard"
town's reflection pool
gets filled in

Sun after the rain -
little pools how they glitter
this Easter morning!
