We go on to publish our winners. These are the awarded poems at Romanian Kukai contest for January 2008. The theme of the contest was blizzard.

First place

Gate in ruins –
only the fiery wind
still open it

Loredana Florentina Dănilă

Second place

Storm-swept winter -
the old woman with a bread
dragging her boots

Adina Enăchescu

Orphan children –
the blizzard throwing the gate
maybe is my mother?

Adriana C. Iacob

Third place

House of old people –
the last visitor shrouded
in blizzard

Eduard Ţară

The blizzard roars –
in the yard of kindergarten
a creaky cradle

Vali Iancu

Storm –swept passage
a sparrow picking at
the blind man ’s bread

Valeria Tamaş
