The Poetry for Peace contest was held from 15 September until 14 October 2011. The winners were anounced at a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York.
Below is one of the contest entries.
An atomic black rain erasing the trace of life. Hiroshima. The mushroom cloud sowing death and fear. Sad memories. Fat Man and Little Boy. The blasts burned people and the towns. City of Hiroshima. A boy raises from the dust and ahses. Sad anniversaries! Hiroshima and Nagasaki witnesses conscience of human race. Clouds cleared - Nagasaki a tombless graveyard
