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




I smell the rain in the sight of my foes.

In your rainless eyes, my heart overflows!

The sphere today doesn’t pray,

Doesn’t ask for rain, or eyes that betray.

Tell me! Did you ever steal my heart?

Rain falls from my eyes, tears me apart!

My heart tells me to follow the universe,

Of flowers’s perfume, thirsty eyes, and a dry face!

Faraway, the ocean’s waves blow;

Turbulent which in the laughter of you glow.


When I see you, I always cheer.

Let us speak in tongues, so no one can hear!

At the end, I am insane, I hurt;

The end of me, the beginning of you, some alert!

Autumn is arriving, it is the silent of sunset,

Where we planned to join, to laugh, to forget!

Oh, how I wish you knew my dear friend-

The need of my rainless eyes in search of end!! …





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!"
