First Place

blizzard on the way

my immigrant past

Second Place

Third Place

butterfly chasing butterfly

who knows

what dreams may come?

Rebecca Drouilhet

High up in a birch

larks' duet - the wind

blows it to the skies

Seven Honourable Mentions

(in no particular order)

thoughts of home

drip from a roof icicle

Chinese New Year

Chen-ou Liu

moonlit pond ...

the sound of water brings

news of a dead frog

(for Onishi Yasuyo)

Chen-ou Liu

waiting for lovers

our old bench in the park

vernal equinox

Natalia Kuznetsova

potter's hand

on a blue jug

a moulded memory

time travel...

the ancient music

just wind in the oaks

Rebecca Drouilhet

no one going

in my direction

drifting leaves

Susan Constable

bed bound -

watched by

falling snow
