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.

A flash consumed all
With no way to remove those
red stains on white sheets

Ended the cruel war
at the cost of many lives
War has no winners

— Hendrick Hui
