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.
Blackanthemums Again Folded faces holding folded papers, to tell their story, of a silent explosion, of a silent youth. Chaos snowing on the debris, tears of fear, tears of pain, trickle on the blackanthemums. Hopes of peace on the new chrysanthemums, in the memories of children, of a loud Sun, of a loud rebirth.
