(7/2/00)

 

_________First Place__________

 

 water-lily

in the middle

of the moon

 dusk

the lily folds

into itself

 _________Third Place________

   

 empty church-

after the funeral

the scent of lilies

in-laws visit--

a red dragonfly lands

in the white lily

_________Below Third Place________

 

without a sound

a water-lily opened

on the old pond

moving day

the lily on her grave

finally blooms

night's end

the first day lily

in bloom

lightning

fills the lily's

throat

lily pads and frogs

on the deli clerk's blouse--

lunch hour haiku

 

*Billie Wilson

 

trailing back and forth

across the lilies -

a black bird's shadow

how quiet

the north side of our house

lilies of the valley

two ladies

nodding to each other  -

lillies

red day lilies

and a hummingbird

suspended

bouquet of lilies--

from the perfectly arranged garden

clutched in a small fist

 

christy

 

 

under a summer moon,

lily buds lighten

the doorstep

yellow lilies

the sound from a trumpet

across the street

 

odd

 

late for church -

the scent of Easter lilies

fills the pews

 

hilary tann

 

 

beneath the lily pad

the moonlight catches

a flash of gold

 

Lesley

 

a drained pond...

ducklings hide

in the lilies

 

Hugh Waterhouse

 

 

tiger lilies

grew around our old back porch

homesick

 

AJae

 

high humidity--

my father holds a lily

in his withered hand

 

timothy timothy timothy

  

calla lily ...

a droplet of rain slides

down its funnel

 

an'ya

 

the canal

packed full of water lilies

a beer can weaves

 

pamela

 

the lily bows

as I enter the room

a gentle breeze

tiger lilies

the cat stalks a robin

in the backyard

water lilies

the swan glides past

to reach its nest

 

Joann

 

the site

of her passing -

plastic lilies

Perfection and peace

Lilly Lily in my arms

She is our new child

baking bread

too enthusiastic frog

slightly missed

warm evening

giving the trumpet lilies

a leaf trim
