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




… Love sweeps away the blow!

It brings out our best with glow!

Gently, lovingly, we flow!

… Love sweeps away the real time,

To show us when the bells chime;

And mostly, creates our rhyme…

… Love sweeps away the hate and pain,

When we control our emotions in our brain!

Love shows us death is insane;

And it shows us life will remain…


… Love sweeps away the old;

And reveals the new either is warm or cold;

And unveils the bad with scold;

And it cleanses the falsely teach-

Of love and shows us each-

Not to become too late,

before each of us finds a mate!

… Loves sweeps away the sand-

Out of our eyes and-

Out of shores of sea,

But doesn’t remove the pain that isn’t free,

Even though at times it may heal;

But mostly it hurts, so much to deal!


… Love sweeps away the sorrow;

And shows us the joy of tomorrow;

And removes its shameful cover-

To reveal at times to a lover;

That love is forever the cover-

Of pain as well as cure and hurt;

And healing spread on planet earth!

And finally love sweeps away and show,

The false time to us in which we grow;

And lives to show us real love,

Real times, unmeasurable and above!

Because Christ Lord is born with love!! …

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!"
