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 starlight

When it rains, the sky often seems immersed in an otherworldly contemplation.
Then it seems to me that only a poem can describe exactly what the heavenly sea feels.
But this heavenly writing remains lonely even in her random socialization.
Those moments take action the routes of stary lights, which mold the called starlight.
To thus created the first emblem of the myth of the stars, which even silently are seeking the common text of the universe.
Besides, when the sky cries with rain, a small text grows and instills its meaning to human eyes.
Besides, nothing surprising does happen, it suffices to consider the lives of legends where stars instill the feelings of our existences.
After all, the starlight is a true happiness.
I felt it, I see it, I will enjoy it forever.

  3. Stars and starlight are so lovely. I love.
    The poem is much more than only the words. The poem is the feeling too.
    Just now here the sky is crying. It´s a rainy day.
