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 Dream of Peace

Give me a flat tire
to clear the minds armed.
A white out to hide the Horrors.
the copying not to forget
the ruler to measure
that dream of Peace
that the world is still trying.
It accomplishes the miracle can happen
or remain illiterate forever. 

— Anna Lauria
