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 :

At the sea of glance
one sun dot
detects the future

Then one word
taken from the soul
releases the invitation

Our heart is wide
and they all fit along
with their dreams

But by the old poems
space is beautified
like spontaneous kiss

Since when people
will love the matter
unnecessarily and unjustly

But see what beauty erupts
on the horizon depths
when our lips speak authentic

Yannis Politopoulos
