To Mr. Sunrise:

Few weeks ago, Lavender joked about having me translate the Chinese poems, quoted in The Pearl Princess, into English. Honestly, she really got me. That's why I referred her to a Web site to view the English Translation of the 300 Tang Poems done by other experts.

Thank you so much for sharing such beautiful poems with me. To reciprocate your favor, I am going to share with you a short note I wrote imitating Dante's "Inferno". This will be my last note to you. Take care, my friend.

Walking down the darkened ally, I passed little antique shops. I found myself gazing at each window, searching for my reflection. At one shop, the window display centered on an old, grandiose mirror. I paused at the window and continued to admire myself. Checking for facial imperfections, or rather to assure perfection, I became so absorbed I did not realize the mirror engulfed me and I had entered a new realm. My vision blurred and I could not see my reflection.

A person appeared and said to me," I am your guide to the gateway of Heaven, and I have come to help your journey to salvation." He took me to a reflection pool and showed me the Underworld and the lost souls that inhibit it. The Advisor said,"There are many. Their faces are unidentified, so they are grouped by categories. You have those that think they are the best, the most superior alive. You also have those who are physically obsessed, and then some that sunk to superficial levels to alter their bodies. These souls all focused on outer beauty, and denies the beauty of their inner-selves. The beauty god provided them."

I began to understand my lesson. My Advisor, sensing my newfound knowledge, nodded in pleasure. "Come child," he called. "Follow me towards the light." I did as I was told, and found myself standing beneath a bam of light. This time, I saw my reflection.
