520    Heiwa, which means "peace" in Japanese, is a bilingual 
       poetry anthology. Its 150 poems by 105 authors from 
       America, Brazil, Canada, England, and Japan were chosen 
       from over 300 submissions to an international competition.
       The rules of the competition allowed the poets to write 
       haiku or tanka in English or Japanese on the theme of 
       peace. The winning poems were then translated into the 
       other language so as to make the poetry accessible to all.
       As an example of the range of the poets' exploration of 
       the theme of peace, one of the English haiku poets offered
       the following meditation, "Sand castles/ becoming/ sand," 
       while one of the Japanese haiku poets illustrated the 
       importance of harmony in Japanese society by observing, 
       "Wishing to be/ a reliable mother - / I shall make sushi."
