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 :

A poem is born

My look turns
in the sea

My hand flies
to the future

My mind travels
to the beauty

Then a miracle is born

My words become

My tears become

My laughs become

And my friends
become brothers
by their reading

  1. Again so lovely poem. Especially I took a liking to your words- My mind travels to the beauty-

  2. Brothers in reading, a great concept. If more people tried to read and understand, the world would be a better place.

  3. Beautiful poem Mr. Yannis!

    I did not know you had two blogs. I just saw your blog in Greek, and I had thought you had stopped blogging in English!

    You still have my portrait of you here!

    Thank you so much for your warm friendship, Mr. Yannis!
