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 kiss of meanings

Imagination is
her dream

Imagination is
his thought

Imagination is
their first common breath

Forgiveness is
their hands under the rain

Forgiveness is
their looks under the moon

Forgiveness is
their first kiss under the sun

Because now they know
that a couple of kisses
can make them forget
the wrong past of their youth

And mainly because
three steps away
a child hymns the happiness
under their real kiss of understanding

Yannis Politopoulos
