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 :

In the embrace of flowers
a kiss blooms

In coastal look
one love is born

With the kiss of nature
children are traveling

For where are sailing
the children's eyes

Once the sun sweeps the land
two hands come together

In the world's countries
a small poem travels

What a pity not to believe
that poetry can
change the world

And it will be a sweet May
when love overpasses
all disputes

Oh, people listen to children
that love their friends
to take them on a trip to infinity

Yannis Politopoulos
