Smoke by Isobel Riches (3rd)

Sun and Cloud by Alannah Buckingham (Highly Commended)

I. Sun

medallion yellow, sandstone orange
cherry red, and cobalt blue on white
the colours of the sun in our sky
mixing like liquid on high
lapis blue, reflected in the eye
tints of lipstick red and dull apricot
above sky blue, peacock, and spruce
golden among the cerulean

II. Cloud

pearl white cotton clouds
dot the unending firmament above
percaline reflections of infinite colour
that turn charcoal black and iron grey
that drip Aegean, stone, navy, sapphire
glow daffodil, blonde, honey, Tuscan
and an absent berry-blue beyond
chiffon mist on umber dirt
