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.
Pika-Don P ictures of the past, chronicle the history of the future I lluminated lights fill the sky with a boom that is heard around the world K nowing the pictures from this light show, leave permanent snap shots on the unknowing photographer A negative imprint of sadness once filled by joy that may not be visible to all D eep wounds not only fill the heart, but the memory and consciousness of those who survive O pen your eyes, the negative imprints of history that once resided in the dark N otions of positivity and change in the disarmament of the atomic light show
