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.
Paiute Campsite The peace of full bellies. Peace of the flames dying down and the first stars coming out. Of the wolves circling well out of range of the fire light for the strong hunters are here. Of the little children crawling forward to lay their heads on their mother's laps.
