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




… So valiantly, the storm, she withstood.

For a moment, the trees overcame their mood!

… The branches cradled her amongst their leaves,

So she could rest up there with breeze…

… When the storm passed, the sun made her dry.

She rested leisurely, watched birds fly!


… She would long for tenderness which never abuse.

Being far from home, she cares for her bruise!

… Under the willow tree, where branches whip,

She sat inside the shadow, silence did creep!

… When birds migrated, she sat and wept.

Sun showed its face, it was soothing, it had depth!

… Now she feels energy from delusions of her past;

In wholeness she goes home, so empowered at last!! …

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!"
