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 :

Friends in my look

My language
can write for everyone

My voice
can hymn everybody

My love
can translate everything

My memory
can touch anything

It is because
I am something of all

What else can I teach
but the truth of real love

So today I swim
by my friends in the sea of future

Yannis Politopoulos

  3. Maybe you swam over the many countries to me because I thought to look at your new poems.
    Your poems are really for everyone. I like that.

  4. What a lovely scene with the mountains barely visible in the background. Your words are really touching and so real.
