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

First place

Late night –
only the lime fragrance
passes the street

Ioan Marinescu-Puiu

Old woman’s house
only the fragrance of lime
passes her threshold

Livia Ciupav

Second place

A lime branch
looking beyond the wall
for the first time

Eduard Ţară

First day school –
in the lime hollow
two satchels

Dan Norea

Third place

Edge of the night
the last lime blossom
in a winding flight

Gabriela Marcian

Bent by the times
forgotten by the poets
the lime in Copou.

Dumitru Roşu
