FIRST PLACE


       tasting a slice of melon
       the truck farmer's
       anxious smile

SECOND PLACE

      in the melon patch
      lost all summer

THIRD PLACE


     cloud over the sun...
       the last melon 
       goes into the sack
                                      Hugh Waterhouse

       this morning
       the smell of cantaloupe
       ripening
                     Cindy Bene


           behind the rind
           melon water drips
           from her chin

  empty punch bowl--
  beneath the couch
  melon balls

                       watermelon rind
                       on the picnic table
                       black ant trail
                                               ken kuniyuki
 

          heads turn to watch
          pale green melons rolling
          on the new asphalt

       three days 
       and still not ripe

            summer compost -
            tomato skins and
            watermelon rinds

  opening a crate
  of ripe cantaloupes 
  summer's first dawn
                                    paul m


                open air market
                ruby lipped children
                selling melon juice
                                               Carolyne
 

         evening barbecue -
         the scent of fresh-cut melon
         on someone's plate
                                          kirsten bishop


       sticky pages
       in the seed catalog
       - pickled melon
                                  doris kasson


   slicing cantaloupes  
   under an orange umbrella -
   a bee trails the knife
                                       Ferris

      even as he sees it...
      the melon is devoured!
      ...that tinge of green
                                         Zoned Cat


                  boys in the garden--
                  the melon's curve
                  over knee-high corn
                                                   Michael Dylan Welch
