First Place 


   morning sun -
   the pattern of cracks
   in the old plate
                      Alison Williams


Second Place 


   country church -
   sunlight glints from
   the collection plate
                         hilary tann

   blind date
   she twirls her fettucini
   on the dinner plate

BELOW Third PLACE 
river picnic -
minnows schooling
among paper plates
                   Ferris

sitting zazen
before the empty plate--
abuzz with thoughts
                     charlie
     first snowfall-
half empty plates left
     at the dinner table
                            Kelly Donlan

in the dusk,
blowing down the highway
one paper plate
                     Rob Krevitz
Thanksgiving --
my small cousin shares
her plate of grapes
                      ==Leanne

Thanksgiving dinner:
she sets out the Limoges plates
for herself and the cat
                          Charles Trumbull
winter morning
nothing to feed the dog
but a plate of beans
                       Dennis H. Dutton

the children tucked in --
arranging cookie crumbs
on Santa's plate
                  Joann
roiling clouds -
paper plates tumbling
through the park
                  Tim

     at her table
checking out my hair
     in my dinner plate
                         Tom Williams
a plate of hot stew
the smell of winter
enters my nostrils
                    CoKa

more on my plate
than I can handle;
switching computers
                     Joe Kirschner
copper shines through
on old Sheffield plate
grandma's silver

a black fly's footprints
in the maple syrup
                     ~Dana

breathing fire in sunset sky --

dim dinner lights
across the porcelain plate
the shadow of his name card

diamond-shaped baklava
a drop of honey
on the plate
               Paul MacNeil
empty chair and plate -
waiting for fathers return
again this year

holiday spat
platefuls of food
untouched
            ~cindy bene
remembering --
years of tradition
on the Seder plate
                     Betty
camping by the lake
watching the full moon rising
silver plate on clouds
                        Elaine Cleveland
in spaded clod
porcelain piece glints-
plate too full to care

    R. W. Richardson {c 12-01-98}
sooty fingers
round the thrift store plate
birdsong and chrysanthemum
