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




Autumn secret you are, I am just winter blues.

My heart is slave of you, takes your abuse!

You are my candles of secrets, you’re my praise.

I am just a fist full of dirt in all your days!

You are a blue divine sea, endless and calm.

I am a wave caught in storm I can’t overcome!

In the generous, bright sky, you glisten.

In the sparkling drops of rainfalls, I listen!


My frightened soul makes me feel gray.

Come friend, save me from tonight’s way.

You’re my world, quiet, full and long.

I am your guest tonight, sad, far, among!

I am so restless now! Can I stay tonight?

Unsettled moments I have, remain, show me the sight!

With delight my eyes laugh to see-

You by my side, taking me to your sea.


I dream of flowers that storm took.

Now my dream is a hidden desire of your look!

Your stream of tears  fall from your cloud!

I am a small flower washed by your blood!

It is the end, I am full of your calm sea.

I write my poem, telling you no pain of me!

You’re gone, I am without you, without moon!

I cross over to the other side to see you soon!! …

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!"
