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 reflection of the soul

In its light is written
the spring

The love of a melody
gazes the summer

And when the flow of wind is changing
Poetry runs to the sea

Our hands know
the mix of soul and saltiness

In the eyes of my friends
in the whole world
a caress reads our emotions

And friendship is transmitted
to the four cardinal points
on the occasion that we all are the mankind

Forever the friendship of our souls
reflects on the horizon
the meeting of our words

Yannis Politopoulos

  1. Dear Mr. Yannis!

    This is a truly wonderful poem, although I cannot fully understand it, it leaves a wonderful feeling of gentle caress and friendship!

    And thank you so much for leaving such a wonderful and tremendous comment on my blog! You've always supported me, and I feel grateful to you for your friendship and wisdom. Reading your poem makes my day!

    Here is my poem!

    You are
    An unnatural and
    Nice and
    Sentimental person

    People love your poems that
    Only you can express in a
    Language full of
    Inner meaning
    Understanding it is a
    Opportunity to
    See our every day world from a beautiful light

    Greetings from NJ,

  2. Yannis, you wrote some of the brilliant poems, they me happy.

  3. Music and friendship, a great combination in a poem. I love the turntable, what a blast from the past. It's been many, many years since I listened to an LP, although I usually listen to complete albums on my music server.
