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.

The spell of Mans Peacing
is spiral hid in structures tone.

transparent to Rays of economy
or political science.

Known in silence,when Faith
is spent.

a lost letter in evolution.
Formulae of living symbols signed
upon the stranded gene.

Ink in a poets pen
State in the tyrants hand.

receding as we approach
arriving when least expected

all-times here
waiting for you now

— Chris Law
