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

… the dark clouds of sorrow within me

Become rain, fall in the sea.

The cold, betrayed regret makes me numb.

Sheltering in myself to overcome-

Peace that runs from friction!

The constant chase becomes my addiction.

Often feeling that peace and tranquility abuse.

Honesty and bliss are long gone news.

The vain battle continues and croons.

The lost war growls and untunes…

… The ever blue sky, up there, cheers.

The sooty cloud, then appears.

The pleasant perfume of rain eases.

The warmth of sun rays in winter pleases.

The colorful rainbow blushes.

My lost soul, under moon, crushes…

… I feel to lay down in my safe corner close;

Forget pain, sorrow, load, and doze.

Close my eyes tight and dream.

Push bitter realities aside and deem.

As tired as I am to yell,
Blank emptiness fills my seashell!! ...

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!"
