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





Yesterday’s tomorrow is today.

Filled with hope, dream. joy and sorrow;

A new sunrise, a new start, a tomorrow!

An empty page! Should I begin to write?

With the wind in my eyes, I can’t see the paper of white.

With the sun on my face,

I am challenged in this place!



Such a gift, anticipation, surprise, betray-

Opened with hearts-

Hands, thoughts, arts-

Bright eyes!

Through us the day tries!

Its purpose, direction, energy, goals-

Driven by us or our souls!

We’re the gatekeepers of bliss,

Of today with its peace!

With the wind, we dance;

With the sun, we romance.

For today, shine!

What is promised, what is mine;

Open hearts, sunshine-

Opportunity, divine!! ...

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!"
