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 touch of glance

         The rain has just stopped, when the woman’s glance traveled to the edge of the sea for the first time. There, where at the previous nights dream was placed the glance of the end of one mans loneliness.
          Now, the woman was trying to kiss by her glance the future that her own life had promised to her.
          Almost at the same time the man was standing at the same edge of the sea, hopping that luck could offer him at last a unique love.
          They were both leading actors of a story without knowing it. Of a story witch the life itself was filming.
          Suddenly, the man first felt the desire to look straight into the eyes of the woman, and he did so, by sending a glance to caress her eyes.
          The woman sensed immediately that the end of a handsome man’s loneliness penetrate her. And she accepted the man’s look by extending her hand to the side of the man’s glance coming.
          To the touch of their love looks the light autumn wind started transporting the suspicion of their first internal caress to the edge of the eternal summer of their life.
          And even the rain slept away, understanding that the infatuation was turning into love.
          And love is the leader demonstration of the universe.
