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.

Angelic Song

Touched by invisible waves
gently pushing me
to the beautiful
Angelic Embrace

A dreamy world
released from worries

A neat sky
a blue sea
like a little child
live, sing
and sigh again

I am plunging in the cloud
in the roseate colors .
Whereas the sun
is reigning
and Archipelagos' edges
is wheedling.

— Katerina Kostaki
