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.

New Japan

In old days of peace
I fought the long winter term,
With my candle light.

But these days, I stay at home
Lights of new Japan blind me.

— Dinesh Sairam
