GREETINGS!!

I am writing this letter as a form of Christmas message. I'm grateful for the opportunity that you have given me to participate in a free blogging system for prisoners.

May this wondrous season be filled with festive moments and unexpected pleasures to brighten your world and bring you smiles and joys to share...

Please scan this letter for posting on the internet, I would like to share my poem "THE FEELINGS OF NATURE".

Nature exists just as it is,
outside as well as behind bars.

I remember the saying,
Live life one day at a time.

From time to time, we all feel
a little disappointed with our lives
and perhaps the people in them.

Let me touch a tree on leafs,
walk without the shoes, get wet under
the rain and look into the sky,
so that I can be touched by the shining sun.

Nature has become the check and balance
of my life.
The biggest lesson is to live for today
in your true spirit.

My brothers and sisters
we could learn many important
things from nature, get up
and touch someone and give
him or her a little stone or
a chip of wood and your soul
will be rewarded.

If you live your life touching
the present moment, you always
will be living your life completely...

Luis D. Perez

***************

My friends,
Enclosed you will find a leaf from a prison tree, it is important to me to symbolize the occasion of my poem "Nature" as a form of gratitude of having access to the wet-side, besides I give freedom to the leaf in the process.

Yours truly,

[signed] Luis D. Perez
