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



Ellie belfiglio


… Pitter patter on my window pane-

Falls delightfully the wanted rain.

It comes from azure clouds above;

The kind we love, no thunder, but tender love.

I sit behind the window, watch the showers-

Fall calmly upon the grass and flowers.

I think that we always need-

For our soul, spiritual rain to feed.


We are advised not to forget, but pray!

Always give thanks no matter night or day;

For all the good we receive,

Without them, we dare not to live…

… I thank our Father for the rain.

Rain will help to grow the grain,

The grass, the flowers and the seed,

While they supply all that we need!! …

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!"
