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

… My eyes roam a foamy sea.

On the sand, I stand before you.

In the waves, my thoughts do reside.

Submerged in eternal envy,

No longer can they hide.

… A perfect pendulum swinging.

All time expelled forever, bringing-

Jealousy into my heart.

No age exists to these waters glimmering.

Why not I? Arms raised and wide apart.


… Each new born wave overtaken the past.

Nothing hinders you, oh rolling sea!

You honor no worries to the cast.

Then I ask you timeless sea, why not me?

… Worry and time will grip my heart until I rot.

Worries, I have plenty, but little time have I got!

On masterful sea, seize me from the sand.

Yet content you did not,

As my love and I stroll off hand in hand!! …

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!"
