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.
Dawn of Lights The sun shines upon Japan, the trees, the leaves, the sea. The wind collides with light, Flames arise and meet the air. Cupped hands draw closer and draw to the sky. drops of the present freckled in age. Remind us of that day the blackened roses bud.
