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




… Emerging, so slowly, in all her magnificence,

Finally, excruciatingly, she is opening, flowering!

Called “emotional healing,” it is, oh, so much more;

Submitting, trusting, putting aside incriminating cowering…

… Covet “testing of the waters”. Making sure it is safe;

No longer is this necessary for one so enraptured!


Seeking excuses for secrets, filling way more regrets;

Sorry habits affecting  heartaches. Now love has been captured.

… Oh! awesome wonder of love! It takes my breath away!

Life is surely safe with love as her about to advocate!

Entrenched obstacles transformed, transparent concoctions!

Love: The overcomer! Trust: The issue, consummate!

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!"
