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.


Noiseless wrinkles
on our forehead
the frontiers of history,
shed oblique glances
at Homer's verses.
full of guilt
wounded whispers
that became echoes
in lighted caves
of the fools and the innocent. 

— Dimitris P. Kraniotis
