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




Lay me down among roses!

In your tender touch, lose me to your poses.

Chase away returning nightmare;

Of a world I dread, yet I don’t share.

Hold your lips to forbidden sin,

What we are about to glean.

Lie me down till moonlight dies;

And sunshine comes on our waken sighs.


Swim the water far beneath me,

Ride the waves, don’t drown in your glee.

Wash me in your waterfall,

Promise me stay in reach, not brawl.

Crave my kisses, want my quest,

Beg me to sing a song you request!


Inside my lovely world, break,

And burn me with your loving ache!

Run with me through sunshine ray,

Beneath your needs, bury me away!

Your sweetened berry, to me feed.

Squeeze my juice, drink it for your need.

Touch my fire I have lit,

Forever be mine, don’t quit!! …

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!"
