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





… You came with smile, blue returned to sky.

Moonlight covered gentle night with sweet sigh!

The angelic butterfly after your birth-

Became restless in its little hearth…

… Your pink skin brought envy to spring.

Winter’s color was showed around my eyes like a ring.

Like a rose, your perfume would always last.

And I am just dirt in the pot of past…


… Your cry was blue, yet kind and bright;

A drop of your tears calmed my delight!!

… Let’s open the window for the breeze-

Is celebrating you two’s birth with ease.

In winter, the mysterious spring embraces-

Each tree, leaf, a bird of far places…

… You, the fruits of my fruit, my joy and pride,

Welcome home where from now on you must abide!! …

Newborn twins sleeping

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!"
