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 sunray on the ruins of a bombed town a new life a dead eye gazing at the sky burned city August day a plane above the city bringing screams and pain a destroyed city in a tear of a small child submerged moon a flash of sunshine among dead people on the shards of glass August bombing the sound of the blast even today
