We go on to publish our winners. These are the awarded poems at Romanian Kukai contest for November 2007. The theme of the contest was first hoar frost.

First place

The first hoar frost
over the child’s coat
one more patch

Valeria Tamaş

Night with rime –
trees without name
watch the moon

Flavia Muntean

Second place

First white frost
only the chrysanthemums
don’t shade its petals

Maria Tirenescu

Firs bow down –
the frosted moon passes
through Tori

Anişoara Iordache

Third place

The first rime
over the last rose flower…
raven’s shadow

Magdalena Dale

The rime is fallen –
outdoor not one insect
Brahms in an undertone

Iancu Vali
