(9/17/00)
_________First Place__________


dewy night
on every grape
the moon

 ________Second Place________


autumn dusk -
clusters of grapes
cast purple shadows

hortensia anderson
 _________Third Place________
    

plundering
the grape vines
- bright-eyed orioles

_________Below Third Place________
afternoon sun
the burst of a grape
on the tongue

dusk
   a stray grape on the market floor
                            
gary steinberg
puckered face-
the sour taste
of a stolen grape

wild vines...
in the sweetness
the bite of grape seeds

joyce maxner
one last kiss--
the vine-wrapped arbor
heavy with ripe grapes

*Billie Wilson
a raindrop
on the black grape
moonrise

Alison Williams

harvest day -
baskets with grapes
slowly glide over the vineyard

trailside grapes
a yellow leaf quivers
with a beetle

Yu Chang
grape vine wreath
on the weathered garden gate - 
a leaf drifts by

Marylouise Knight
 
filled with grapes
her mouth mumbles
blue words

more sour
than last year's grapes...
autumn chill

it too is sweet
the shade of the old mission's
grape arbor

market day -
a memory of grandmother
sampling the grapes

Chinese altar
a plate of grapes
for the ancestors

Patrick
five year old
a grape juice smile--
missing tooth

Carmen Sterba

picking grapes
more in her mouth
than in the basket

first school day
tiny fingers gently swing
a cluster of grapes

a tangle of woody vines...
the grape moth
spreads it's wings

Suzanne McIntire


sudden draft
a single grape
between the glasses

"o"
 
we lie curled together
nibbling grapes and 
reading Shiki's poems aloud

rmstutts
broken vines
hailstones the size
of grapes

arkady


fruit for the taking
over the grapevine
crows spread the news

Ted Hambling


fuzzy morning
the plop of a grape 
under my shoe

max Verhart
lazy autumn sun --
after third peeled grape
rolls back under cover
