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 melon.

First place

Nobody to watch –
among yellow melons
the moon is missing

Eduard Ţară

harvest time -
only the moon's shadow
on a melon stalk

Simona Dobrescu

Second place

With all its seeds
the slice of water melon
is laughing at me

Ioan Marinescu-Puiu

Country road–
the crunch of carts
laden with melons

Adina Enăchescu

Moon in gloom -
the melons lights up
the thief’s way

Doina Bogdan Wurm

Third place

Melon thieves -
just this night the guard
would be drunk

Ana Ruse

Drizzle -
among the striped melons
the old dog…
