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




The urge of writing comes in my awakening sleep.

So unexpectedly, wakes me up from awakening deep.

I walk to another room to satisfy,

My urge of writing with half closed eye.

I write things I’ve never thought about;

Feelings, ideas, things from my heart!

I write the words before I had not known;

But they all come in my dream, now they’re my own!


I realize I have come with a new insight,

A new idea, something didn’t exist before tonight.

It is my way of expressing, like telling a friend,

Who lends an ear to you, so your heart does mend.

When I write, I feel a wave of pleasure;

Looking at my writing words has no measure.

Pick up the pen and write your share.

It frees you from clutter, gives you fresh air!! …

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!"
