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 books they read our life

The lyricism
and the breath of his words

The movement
and reciprocity of looks

and footsteps in the future

a book
travels to the look of the road

The promise
and the realization of dreams of

the message
and the love of its reciprocity

the tale
and the depths of his worship

The arts made the world
have past for its future

Yannis Politopoulos
