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.

Wanted to sleep but
Had pain in stomach that beat
So left the sheets to
Feel and touch blue water deep
Collective healing hide / seek

— Jessica White
