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.
Peace... It doesn't work in poetry Peace can be feeling of shiny windows Peace can be rounding the yard with a can of coffee Walking in the middle east of a silent street Drinking from the spring head Peace... It doesn't work in yelling: Peace! Peace! Peace!
