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

“REPLENISHING THE SAND”

Faith slowly, slowly has passed

Like sands in an Hour-Glass pour and blast.

The top gets empty, the bottom does remain.

All alone, its power drives me insane.

Preserving, after a self-induced beating

Ah, a granule of hope lingers, not quitting!

I hear my favorite love song,

So endearing, it can’t be wrong.

With strength I turn the glass,

To see power and faith heal my soul to relax.

The decent of sand gives me thrills;

So I keep turning the glass up in hills.

So frequently, to ride of my sorrow;

For today, or yesterday, even tomorrow!! …

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!"
