When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…




I think of you as the rain play-

Upon the roof, beating out a calm gray.

A rhythm like a soft- tuned piano in dim-

“CASABLANCA” love scene, attention’s beam-

Drawn by the melody to an unheard music,

Louder than what I heard in the lyric.

The THUND’ ROUS roar of my heart-

Softer than dawn! To you, beauty is art.

With the gentle flick, you compose a wonder-

Of your heart, then repaint the sky with thunder.

Your smile, endearing, even the falling leaves-

To your favorite glance, this, it weaves;

That I can not but hunger and thirst for more!

I think of you and your smile that allure-

Softly inside, and hear your name, so pure-

In the wind with a sigh and lure!!! …

Author: elliebelfiglio

I am a professor, a poet, an author, and an immigrant. I am the survival of many political and economical hardship. As a political immigrant, it took me a long time to master the English language and to come to terms that I can never see my family again. "THE PARTING FROM MY FAMILY WAS THE BEGINNING OF A FRIENDSHIP THAN THE END OF OUR FRIDAYS!" My autobiography, "THE RAIN STOPS IN TEXAS" was published in 1997 by Eakin Press. It can be found in Amazon. As Ernest Hemingway says, write about something you know, most of my novels are about cultural difference of the old and new and American style of living compare to my home country. My poetry are in all forms. I write as they come to me. My first draft is always my last draft. "THIS IS MY WORLD, WELCOME!" "THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE!"
