First Place:

deep winter.
                     the armload of firewood
                     chills the kitchen

Carol A. Purington

 

Second Place:

mourning dove calls . . .
     my elderly neighbor stills
          the sound of her hoeing

James Chessing

August morning—
a window washer wiping dust
from his sunglasses

Lenard D. Moore
