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 :

A cloud piece

The sky of writing
is immense

The journey of clouds
it is poetic

Because the sun still talks
to the look of reading

What a pity that some big guys
forget their childhood

But the little cloud
rejoices as a child
the look of children

And is a school for all of us
each piece of nature

Yannis Politopoulos

  5. How much you have lovely thoughts you write poems. just today I was alone to fish and I had a lot of time to look at clouds. I saw clouds in the water too.
    The heaven is blue and clouds so white.
