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




… The beautiful flair

Hiding your face, How do you dare?

Your voice allure.

The angelic music, so pure

That beckons to me

As I caress the rose so free.

It awakens my memory!

… The power of your voice blaze;

The spirit of dark music’s daze,

Hold me spellbound to your smell;

Yet the mask is but a shell.

Holding your beauty within,

Of your rose in that scene…

… As you turn from me,

You know I love you so free

In each way!

The mask shatters away!

The rose wilts along

And I am dying slow for so long;

Not hearing your song!! …

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!"
