The winner of the March 2011 VoicesNet Writing Contest is "The Look of the Rain", a short story by Yannis Apostolos Politopoulos of Greece.

Βράδυ. Ένα μικρό φως ταλαντεύεται για λίγο στο σκοτάδι. Κύματα οι διαβάτες στην προκυμαία. Σε λίγο η πανσέληνος διαχέεται στην ακροθαλασσιά. Γυμνή νυκτωδία σωπαίνει τη πλάση. Σα φιλί άλλης εποχής. Σιωπηλό, έντιμο, βέβαιο για τη δύναμή του. Άξαφνα, ένα ανθρώπινο χέρι γράφει :

The love that unites

In a beach love
a boy from Germany
overlooks the steps of a girl from South Africa

In a kiss mountain
a girl from Finland
smiling at a boy from Australia

In a dream plain
a boy from Russia
spreads his smile to a girl from Mexico

Besides children nothing separates

In a river caress
a boy from Greece
singing to a girl from Brazil

In a memory cape
a girl from China
touches the look of a boy from Canada

In a love island
a boy from the United States of America
singing to a girl from Serbia

Because only love unites the children

And every teacher should feel
that all the world's children
are students of his own chastity

Yannis Politopoulos

  2. Children have pure love and pure hearts. If only the world could stay that way....Love is blind.
