… When she set up to weave a tapestry

Everyone who knew her said,

“It would be a masterpiece!”

Her adept hands exuding poetry,

Her unparalleled treasure of silken threads,

“It has to be a masterpiece!”


… She reached into her treasure box

Full of joy, vivid colored threads;

Yet, bleak threads, she picked again and again!

She wove an intricate web,

More intricate than a spider could ever dream!


… Did she know that she would be the devourer

And the prey in the web??

Did she know that her loved ones

Would be caught at the edges of the web??

The loved ones for whom

She would have woven nothing but rainbows!

Did she know that she was weaving a web?? …

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!"

Let everybody be nice!
