Student Winners

1st Prize

Micah Thorstenson

Provider and Divider

A cave and the storm;
Mother Earth's invitation
and her vengeful wrath.  

 

2nd Prize

Linnea Young

Exile

Alien resides
illusive and illegal
homelessness survives

Mother

Looking out the glass
My heart aches for my children
Struggling every day

Employee Winners

Beck Prigot

Warmth
Not within cold walls
But within my friends' warm arms
Do I find my peace

 

Marjorie Richards

Spoken Here
a porch light left on
gravel crunching an old song
no note to translate

Student Honorable Mention

Mabel Baumgardner

Saudade

Inviting and warm,
Sometimes home has a heartbeat
But no guarantee.
