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




… The day that I am led to water-downed bridge,

More often than not, my worry will fade on the ridge.

I see the cascades, where rocks in the water have met.

The songs they play, I hear- help to soothe- to forget.

… The light-dappled wood- what a comfort to me!

Gentle wind speaks in the language of a tree.

You see, time passes by, I don’t see the same scene.

Majestic blue horizon cast a dark shadow in between.

… How I relish the solace of walking alone,

So lost in thought- in a place all my own!

Though solitude works, why my spirit is low?

The ridge seems to beckon, I tend to go.

What an amazingly, beautiful slice of land,

Her welcoming wild- the ridge holds out her 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!"
