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 :

Rock and Roll

Elvis Presley writes a smile
over the rainbow

Beatles sing a future
under the sun

Rolling Stones create a hymn
through the history

Bob Dylan travels memory
with the carpet of humanism

Led Zeppelin carry a smile
under our souls

Doors play the sunlight
to unite the nations

Pink Floyd create eclipse
of the history of harmony

Janis Joplin travels us there
where Jimi Hendrix makes
the land of eternity

And all the others
here in earth or in heaven
- all importants -
who still travel us
to the words of feelings

  1. Yannis, you've brought several of my favorite bands and musicians into one musical poem. Music is one of my favorite things and I can't imagine life without it. Rolling Stones, The Police, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, I've been lucky enough to witness all of these in concert here in Colorado, and I wish I'd seen the rest you mention as I love them all. Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Beautiful Yannis!I love all your rock an roll stars:)))))))

    Great poem!
