The Little Bookstore that Could

Winners of the 2009 Classics Poetry Competition
First Prize $300.00 to Bruce Cowin for:

Carpet crop circles
suddenly appeared;
remnants of the
wine stained table
and crayon covered chairs,
the wheat coloured sofa,
that softened and absorbed
familiar lounge sounds.

An invisible megaphone
snds the scantest sound
swirling around the room
frantically looking
for somewhere to settle.

Second Prize
Mercedes Webb-Pullman for 'back at Schnapper Rock'

Third Prize
Emma Adams for ' Surrender Dorothy'

Approximately 75 entries from around NZ.
