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

Without thought is so easy.

Single syllable words- three of them!

Like a nuclear meltdown, my brain ceases to function.

Feeling alien in nature consume my being;

Throwing me into cosmic sphere.

This unnatural blend of excitement and fear,

Leaves me with a melancholy sadness.

What dreadful meaning lurks behind these words?

Causing this menacing havoc within me.

Leaving my very existence threatened.

In calm, I let my mind wonder to the image of your face!


Our eyes lock fusing us together as one.

Flesh awakening with a touch- electrifying.

Senses take over where words are forgotten!

Now, while we are apart and I try to command-

My lips to say the words, I am mute!


Do I fear the words will tumble clumsily from my mouth,

That I will be soared for my lack of eloquence!

Or perhaps words will erase the luminescence of this force between us?

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!
