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




I stroll quietly on the shore,

Where the waves rush to the bank and roar.

The obscure clouds take control;

While waves are defeated, yet stroll.

The thunder follows a bright light.

Confused seabirds lose their sight.

The houseboat, close by, moves away.

I hear on it, victims pray.

Rain starts with full force.

Nature shakes within its course!


A vain hope rises to subdue.

Cry begins, it is true.

Ambiance is harsh and tense.

Rushing waves are tall and immense.

Nothing there looks divine.

Frightening lightening is the only shine…

… Suddenly the storm stops the blow.

A crevice divides sky for a show.

Sudden lights in the middle glow.

It is not the lightening but rainbow!! …




Author: elliebelfiglio

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!"
