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.

            Fear, Pain, Suffering,
                A mushroom cloud filled the sky,
                         On that faithful day.

— Shalini Jairaj
