Ellie belfiglio

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




… Innocence! The wondrous days

Amble on so softly

Through the trees, wind rustles

And so suddenly they are gone!

… Days and ways, so carefree

Beside the road of time lie

Where youth coasted down, the hills

Begin to climb, must now!

… On a rainbow path, as a chameleon 

Is ever changing, so life!

Passing through the prism of life

With spectrum re-arranging!

… Upon the shore, the waves that roll

Will surely roll away

Upon the tides that sand that rides

Dreams often swept astray!

… Glow brightly the lights of home

As our steps grow short and slow!

At the innocence, we wonder

So long ago of those days!! …

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!"
