Anything About Spring

anything about spring


_________First Place__________

an empty cocoon -
the old woman sweeps winter
off her front porch. 




 ________Second Place________

bird song --
where do they hide
in these bare branches?

-Jim Mullins 



 _________Third Place________

plum blossoms --
the clear blue sky is
part of the scent

patches of snow-
the first lamb stumbles
to its mother
