Weekly Romanian Kukai no. 427

First Place – Vasile Conioși Mesteșanu

last night’s frost -
no longer fitting in the windows
so many flowers

Second Place – Vasile Conioși Mesteșanu

slippery sidewalk -
you wouldn’t even believe
how many can go wrong

Second Place – Violeta Urdă

song of divorce -
in a drawer a cricket
sitting on a pile of letters

Third Place – Cezar F. Ciobîcă

frosty day -
the old painter chooses
only warm colours

Mention – Costin Iliescu

water mill -
the floating moon suddenly
slips in the trough

Mention – Ana Urma

hill under snow –
adding shadows to it
the sun at dusk

Mention – Grigore Chitul

frozen clock –
increasingly difficult to wait
under the white chestnut trees

Mention – Valeria Tamaș

first snow -
for one day grandpa
becomes a child again

Mention – Violeta Urdă

footprints in the snow –
one single bottle and 
three paths already
