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




In the darkness of my little night

Wind finds refuge among trees’ height!

And I fear devastation in my little hearth!

Listen, do you hear the cruelty howling?

I stand aside to hear its growling

Of my addiction to disappointment and scowling!

Something just happened, night blushes.

In any moment tears from my eyes gushes.

The mourning clouds like a chain

Are waiting for their tearful rain!


A moment or two goes by.

And then it comes nothingness in sky.

Behind my window the shivering night is cold!

And soon the turning of earth will be on hold!

But there must be a stranger behind a tree

Who is worried for you and me!


You, the green land

Put your hand in my burning hand.

And with your warm lips kiss

My cold lips in this abyss.

And the wind can take us…

And the wind can take us!! …

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!"
