Ellie belfiglio

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




Looking at indigo sea with dazzlement;

A dead sea that is unmoving, eternal, and content!

No breeze or wave bring the sea to dance.

No wind or storm make it breathe or relax.

Eternal, indigo, heavy sky hanging low,

Like a blanket covers it row after row!

Awestruck I am to look at this sea,

No sail of a boat, wing of a bird, or shade of a tree.

On these layers and layers of silvery overly-

Which blanket of sky covers it and unlay!

To a funeral the absent sun sends its rays,

And like an indigo net, moon is in daze!


Stars, countless, leave half open their eyes;

And look at sea, look at world, or skies.

Oh, how admired am I with this affluent-

Of water which fills the sea, what a confluent!

Or perhaps water falls from mountains’s dirt;

Or it boils down from depth of earth!

Or perhaps it rains from height of skies.

Assuredly sea is filling with flowing tears of my eyes!! …




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!"
