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
