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.

ancient warriors
under burnt grasses
and probity of man

sunny August day
man and his dog
died together

burnt both wings
of dragonfly and man
that  August '45 day

Tsutomu Yamaguchi
and mankind  -  stronger than
the black mushrooms

— Djurdja Vukelic-Rozic
