Alex beams as he shows his Christmas card--
The prisoner artist, with soft eyes,
has to peer beyond to see
Happy garland embraces think branches,
bright lights shining
Kairos moment! When I see
that emblazoned tree is,
Alex gives a present of hope
to us--who put him
Merry Christmas to all and
may all see the Light.
