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




My eyes have been the struggle in my face;

of one so young, innocent of trace.

Depth of soul mirrored trough their eyes;

the yearning, the longing, the bewildered sighs!

So young and precious, challenge their faces;

yet their hearts sing with music of graces.

Their hearts shine aglow.

They are uplifted to height of their grow.

A high-filled hope and desire-

each day soared and held to inspire-

in the palm of their hands-

with such agony brings forth and expands!

… The brightness away to future, now new light,

as each passage clears the night.

The warmth that circles and touches the very being,

engulf into flames that flicker and sing.

The screech of laughters, the gleams-

echo their enchantment, it seems!

Because it will bring new triumph and hope,

the clouds that threaten to damper with a rope-

are mystified by serenity of rain shower-

the peace and tranquility bestowed, but not cover-

upon them to cope-
in the name of hope!! ...

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!"
