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 :

Traveling to friends

to my wife Vania
and my son Apostolo

The small but so great word found the right occasion a warm autumn afternoon.
From Vania's sweet lips started without anybody being aware of and began to travel in every corner of this beloved blog.
It was the word friendship, which for centuries is one of the most powerful forces of human life.
On her lips  the word always had Vania's beloved combinations  as friendship, eternal friendship, unique friendship and mythistorical friendship.
The word needed only a few hours to reach every corner of the planet and to wish everyone something for one of the most important events of human existence.
Besides, so happens with all pure words. They are traveling in the body, the spirit and soul of the people.
Because the universe is infinite, because the human mind is infinite.
As for the word friendship, it constantly returns to Vania's lips and from there to my writing.
