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

“LURE”

The deep waters glow from brilliant sun,

as we sail from the forbidden coast,

from a refuge found at the southernmost,

through treacherous water isolation,

from an island beyond comparison!

‘Tis the home of goddess, some do boast,

to enhance this beauty, men seek their host.

Lured by Nature’s charm, the reefs they forerun!

Victims of ghostly winds that fill the land,

and the nearby sea with fragrant odor,

create seas full of ships half filled with sand,

while wreckage over spread the ocean floor!

Stems and sterns, keels and ribs, leave no demand,

in watery grave near the tranquil shore!! …

Author: elliebelfiglio

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!"
