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

When dreams become nightmares…



A world of dream within our mind!

It seems to you so kind!


In dreams we can big or tall!

Sometimes we leap, but don’t fall!


In dreams, forever joyous heart, not gray;

If we are lost, we find our way!


In dreams we never do wrong.

There is no weakness, we are strong.


In dreams if we have, we share;

And if we don’t, we care!


In dreams if we wish, it comes true!

We look at life that never is blue.


In dreams we go back and forth in time;

And forever stay young beyond our prime.


In dreams we see people wise;

And if we have goals, they easily realized!


In dreams always is sunny and bright;

And the breeze is serene at night.


In dreams we dance waltz and sing;

And we almost can do anything!


But my dreams are always nightmare;

They possess my night, in my mind they enter!! …

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!"
