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

First place

poppies shadow -
the skylark's song
towards the sun

Henriette Berge

Second place

A skylark -
suddenly the blue
so much deep

Eduard Ţară

Soaring –
the song of a lark
opens the sky

Vali Iancu

Nestling lark -
the shadow of a hawk
in the distance

Livia Ciupav

Third place

A skylark
with the first dew drops
clearing his throat

Ioan Marinescu-Puiu

Sleepless night
listening to a lark
lone on the porch

Ion Untaru

Following the field -
the skylarks still drop
towards it

Mircea Teculescu

Dancing with the sky,
dissipation of shadows and trill -
a lark

Victoria Chiţoveanu

Day of June -
uniting with the sky

a lark

Dumitru Radu
