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





Ribbons of sunbeam

You did stream!

Organdy’s feel

A glow you are, still!

Goblets of silver

Shine in your eyes to deliver!

Laughter, strength, your smell

Never disguised, how swell!

The gifts you brought

Never were erased, I sought!

Like the touch of your face

Or your look with grace!


You were comfort, you had spark!

You were surprise, you were lark!

How witty you were, how visible!

How quite wise, how capable!

You were summer, you were spring

You were fall, to you, I cling!

You blossomed all day and night.

Brought much love and delight!

Tell me why are you disappearing?
I stand aside, as you clearing!! ...

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!"
