Second Place


    autumn crow 
    alone in a forest 
    of colour

    after divorce – 
    the sound of rain 
    fills the room 


Capotă Daniela Lăcrămioara 



Seven Honourable Mention 
(In no particular order) 



        calm water…
        the urge to walk these stars
        as stepping stones


Adjei Agyei-Baah



cold silence –
in the wake of the swan
the tremor of the moon

full moon - naked
dancing with a veil
of snowflakes

no moon
that night our eyes
wouldn’t meet

friends in all weathers
weathering
together

recalling her blush
from fifty years ago

white nights
lost in translation of
the Eskimo words for snow

midnight
only two windows lit
in the skyscraper

sudden calm

               the thud

                      of a fallen

                      kite

 

Billy Antonio

 



Cold waves erase
our boot prints and chatter



Jean Biegun

 



bridges burn
during sunset...
frozen river

cold beauty sparkles
as frost paints wonderful webs 
when spiders are gone

Treading upon

the yellow leaves on the streets –

my dad’s dementia.

seaweed clings

to an edge of the lobster trap

windswept beach

a path between the trees

under the overripe cornel-tree

под презрелия дрян

червена луна

autumn moon

on father's pathway

wreath-laying

autumn vigil
the buzz of crickets who
stay up all night

Same flower shop

this Spring he bought roses

for her funeral

neglected graveyard

grasses whisper

stories untold

late autumn,
stamped on my letters
'return to sender'

winter moonlight
on the migrant's face
crisscross of wrinkles

even the pigsty
stopped smelling like anything
under the first snow

Intoxicating,
the vineyard full of grapes -
the father`s carafe

clouds..
white chrysanthemums
without fragrance

waning moon -

flawless p's and q's

on the last date

In a naked tree 
a squirrel's autumn dance 
joy in the tail 

Riitta Rossilahti

 


tiniest pearl
in the oyster shell
faraway star
