I just got a letter in the mail today. Some of you are thinking it's just a letter and nothing is interesting about a letter. You're wrong......Know why because a letter to me means allot. It's more personal and special than some e-mail some one wrote in a few seconds. A letter can contain anything without the worry of a third party reading it as well. I know that the letter could get lost and your parents may read it, but I'm pretty sure you know what I mean. The thought of knowing that someone sat down and actually thought of what to write and express is a special thing in it's self. Now, don't get me wrong the e-mail is more convenient but just think back about 50 to 60 years ago when that letter was life a death to someone. I probably extracted on the year time line because it wasn't till the 80's the home computers started to come about.
Anyways to continue on about the letter I got. As some may know, others may not. I love to write. I can say I'm not great it because I can never find just the right way to get what is in my head on paper or put into the right words. I entered a poem on a site called it was called Autumn Leaves. I just entered it for the heck of it, thinking nothing of it. But.......drum roll please.........It's going to be published. Yeah me. Also it has made it as a semi-finalist for the top poems.
Some may think the same why my mom did. "Oh it's just a poem being published on the Internet." not all the excited for me. But it means allot to me even if they place random poems in the book because i know that someone out in the world is going to read my poem and get something out of it.

Autumn Leaves
The beautiful autumn leaves
Fall before my window
In a brilliance of beautiful colors
Every day I look out
Seeing the trees wave their arms proudly,
Making the ground
A sheet of glowing gold,
Blazing fire of magnificent red and orange,
And speckled flowers,
Of brown and greens of all shades
Nothing I see can beat the
Beauty of the autumn leaves

Your doing a really good job with your blogs :) You could totally write a book and call it "Mooneyes' Thoughts From the Heart" or something like that. I'd totally read it :P Anywayz, keep up the good work!!
