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.

Where is the Prince of Peace ?

Bundle of energy nicely bundled in a particle
Wrought the peace of people into shattered pieces
Ball of hatred fire never knew young and old
Consumed city to ashes
No difference in the rage of fire, whether it is a spark or explosion
Kindle the Peace, engulf the small nation and big nation
Fill our heart with forgiveness and remove iota of hatred
Love is the only universal medicine and cure for all ill
Invite the Prince of Peace, in the hearts , minds and souls
Everyone on the earth are sojourners, Lets ignite Peace
No difference in  the power of peace, whether it is a spark or explosion
What we sown that we reap 
Sow good seed and gather best fruits to share......................
