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




In our home’s entrance, in the open space

A mother is sitting, light glows on her face.

Days after days, nights in the center

She opens the door for night to enter.

Provoked by her soul, veins of her sound

Never open a laughter ever profound!

She sees beneath the ruins of night

A dynasty is disillusioned in light.

With no sun, the happiness is her day!

The revolution of night is filled with pray!

She renews a thousand of hidden woe.

But when she downcasts her eyes low

To her self shadow, who doesn’t speak

She smiles, and remains unique.

Far from our eyes in a time unfounded

Her self shadow and she remain astounded!! ...

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!"
