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



Ellie belfiglio


We see in lovely eyes, the dawning.

The sunset is drifting, the glorious day is frowning.

The joy of warm sunshine, the light of our dream,

The night of our life, the light we deem.

In the land of laughter, we hear a bell.

We measure our delight, flowers, we smell.

Wonder of now, of past, of what we praise,

They are like life’s journey, calm, yet ablaze!

Links of freedom join to make a chain,

The chain that carries our secrets again.

The sweet tunes of love is not a game,

It lifts up our spirit like a flame.

Vistas are bright, our destiny, plain;

Our hearts’ eyes see things in pouring rain.

We would make our music forever;

If you come home and don’t sever!! …

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!"
