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 eternal reading

How  melodic
is the reading

How much beauty exists
on pages

And no one reads
only with the eyes

Because reading is
child of the soul

All the riches of the world
if they give me
I prefer the books

Because the books are
the beach of my own

Yannis Politopoulos

  1. Hello, my dear friend Yannis!

    "There is always a place for you here", you wrote. I' m here now to Know how are you, your wife, children and comment your words, naturally.

    You are a teacher, and you do everything for the school, the pupils and the education.
    I' m agree, to read is melodic, is adventure, culture, pleasure, and "the beach of your Ithaca". WONDERFUL!

    The vídeo, the song is immortal and my feelings are very happy and opened.

    New poem in my blog. It is very long, but I think that it is interesting. Come! Thanks!

    Good week.


  2. I love books too and I can't stop reading even one day !
    the book I'm reading is always in my bag and each minute
    I find outside my home, I read !
    I wish you and Vania a great week

  3. Lieber Yannis,
    ja, dies haben wir gemeinsam, das Lesen, das Verstehen der Worte. Und du hast Recht, wir lesen nicht nur mit den Augen. Unser Herz liest mit...

    Danke für deine guten Gedanken dazu

    von Herzen
    ganz lieb, Rachel
