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.
rifle barrel the perfect place for a long-stemmed daisy - seeking solace in the woods but can't shake off war - bellicose talk I take my lunch to another table - just war? first ask the orphaned children of the last one - mourning doves calling me back to peace
— Robert Epstein
