Door

door
(3/15, 1998)
 
 
First Place 


   milk bottles
   outside the back door
   half full of rain
                    Matt


Second Place 


      Dutch door opens,
   letting in half
       the tulip field
                      Tom Williams


Third Place 


     jasmine tendrils
     clinging to the shed door -
     a small green frog
                        Ferris


BELOW THIRD PLACE 


   pencil marks-
   the measure of a child
   on the closet door
                      Joann
  


     softly closing
     the bedroom door -
     the flutter of her nightgown
                                 norm jensen


          cathedral school --
          the clicking of keyboards
          behind ancient doors
                              hilary tann


   honeymoon suite door-
   the bellboy's grin
   in the peep hole
                   Carolyne


               gecko on the door -
               the response to my ad
               for a new roommate
                                 Tom Genovese


               deep winter -
               the drizzle frozen
               to the door

          entering
          the old schoolhouse door
          now so small
                      Glen L. Keener


     door blown open
     her singing touched
     ...with hyacinth
                      paul m


          swirl of blowing leaves:
          he rises to close the door
          against the darkness
                              Charles Trumbull


               at death's door
               he cries
               look! my teeth are perfect
                                         doris kasson


      back home ~
      at the front door again
      avoiding the snail
                        gilles fabre


   sultry night --
   a car door slams
   footsteps pass
                 roberta beary


     closing the door
     after kissing goodbye -
     a sleepless night
                      Fred.


          two people living
          together and very close
          -but doors between them
                                 emile


       midnight
       just inside the door
       my lover waits
                     Patricia A. Laurent


   kisses and caresses
   hidden
   behind glass doors
                     Tiffany Crotogino Munoz


                  a tall open door -
                  "cuckoo" "cuckoo"
                  calling us to tea
                                     bill lerz


          I open the door
          for the barking dog...
          cat walks in
                      Hugh Waterhouse


       sleepless night -
       daybreak widening
       the crack in her door
                            Mark Alan Osterhaus


   chance of a lifetime--
   when one door briefly opens
   another closes
                  Cindy Bene


       watch the closing doors
       the blind man's violin goes mute
                                          Mary
