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.

Burned bodies, burned cars,
Burned houses, chimney on the floor
Ruined crops and farms, everyone, downcasted
Disturbed, melancholy, distraught,
Sorrow in the air

— Brianna Sutherland
