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




In a lush, moist blanket of grass I lay!

Gazing at the stars, realizing this is

My only way to cope.

While the specks of light that shines through

The darkness below a call of hope!

My heart shatters! The fiery pain immense

Through the streams, bearing, possessed the light

To a new life within!

Quiver for rest, my mind, my body

For the one I suffered, has flown my nest!

A free spirit in this soul, is why he

Claims no settle?

I loved him and in his departing

He saw a piece of metal!

Appearance of strength, not able to crack.

My feelings real, are now being locked!

This unending love a roaring fire.

His silhouette burns, it is my passionate desire.

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!"
