Paper Cranes

Poetry for Peace Contest

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.

I see bones and a broken house
I think those
Are the people that died?
I feel
I see 
Burn bodies all piled up together I think
These are the bodies that got burned
When the bomb went over

— Serina Fields
