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.
a calm sea and song of nightingale ode to the Peace longing cry of a deer, be joyful — he sings an ode to life for a piteous wage they poison our children- yet, we don't care an infant born with two heads —a miracle? no, there’s poison everywhere! blossoming life, love glimmers in a song — midday at the park
— Smajil Durmisevic
