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

Is it some way to put smile on your face?

Neither competition, not rhyme, not even a race!

Is it a guessing game? Is it a battle to win?

Not a prize, that is mine, with all my sin!

I have a secret admirer, can’t you see?

Not if you guess well, on nights that I am free!

Will I fulfill everyone’s needs, wants, desires?

But when I hear the crescendo at end of spires!


If you can you guess my name, then come to the door!

Not leaving me a note, or I will be free more!

So you must choose well and choose fast.

Not that I wish this prize to last and last!

Do I want whatever I want, and you receive?

If I am sincere, then do believe!

… Do I bid then my last farewell?

Not until that special night, no one can tell!! .16426268_1365589743462348_3162473575160378205_n

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!"
