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.
Hibakusha Each breath depends upon life easing lungs; child & elder. Every inkling, cause for peace. Each moment offering time, simple presence with still hands streaming over darkened light. Sharing inhale, exhale, peace — Calling, come to this.
— Allison Hedge Coke
