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 travel to freedom

By writing I translate
my thoughts

By writing I communicate
with my friends

By writing I merge
with others' dreams

Writing is a god
to communicate with loved ones

A land is the writing
where I travel with friends

A sea is the writing
where I swim with my company

I talk
I love
I'm free

Yannis Politopoulos
