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.

We live in a crystal ball called PEACE,
which rests on a pedestal of wax:
the fire burns within all of us.

— Lucia Barbera
