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.

so reaching out to your roots, in a dark silent night too.

between the jet and the soft blue sky, lightning crosses the land
such stars are born from the ashes

— Maurizio Evangelista
