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

Standing upon a mountain one sunny day,

Viewing the splendor that before me lay.

Majestic mountains towering tall.

Snow lay round their shoulders like a lacy shawl.

A ram on a rock by a waterfall,

Stood with head held high, an eye so keen,

To protect his mate as she drank from a stream.


The wind through the pines- croons lullaby.

To the meadow flowers nod and sway.

Butterflies gracefully play.

An eagle high above the mountain peaks,

Swoops and soars then plunging down to earth.

A little creature has lost his game of hide and seek.

Birds chirping as if to say:

“Isn’t this a wonderful play to stay?” !! …

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!"
