World Poetry Canada International Peace Festival 2013 Winners!




Ariadne’s Note:

It is  with great pleasure that we announce the award winners for the World Poetry Canada International Peace Festival 2013.

Each entry was nominated by one or more people, and went through a background check. The awards are based on humanitarian and peace efforts to make the world a better place.

Many of the award winners are youth. They show a wonderful commitment for peace and the respect of others. Each award winner has sacrificed to promote peace and understanding and in some instances  have shown great courage in the face of adversity.

For the first time ever, we had 10 film, doc entries. With help from our community parter Cinevolution, we were able to include the film award winners this year. The two films will be shown during the peace festival.

Please welcome the World Poetry Canada International Peace Festival 2013 Award Winners:

    O my heart is filled with elation
    To sing, too, with the world class poets
    Who have tabled their poetry pen
    To stab war in the heart

    Here, I avail my pen
    To join all- Dr Penpen
    Dorion, Ariadne, Terri…whose pens
    Have layed eggs of peace as poetry hens

    I be a poet
    Not by my might
    But of thee, the cradle of all souls
    Who calls my poetry pen to anchor the peace pole

    But I still be an apprentice
    Learning to brew the ol of poetry
    Under the mastership of Shakespear’s remnants…
    So I trample over ego and bow to the pride of humility

    Let this course, therefore
    Lead me to the path of poetry captains
    Who would sail my thoughts and emotions
    So I scribe to ears and eyes pleasant poetries

    World Poetry & Canada International
    ‘Miida ny3 shi’…
    O I say, thank you!
