Ellie belfiglio

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



Ellie belfiglio


… In the arms of the wind’s night

I was rocked to sleep beneath moon’s white light.

A friendly ghost from a time long past

Whispered, sighed, it’s grace she cast!

… Shadows played below moonbeam

Chased by the restless wind in their gleam.

Little lullaby, a lovely song

Kept its meaning nice and strong…

… Yearning, things yet unseen

Sang to me, so serene!

Whispered fragments of old broken dream

Rode on the strange, haunting, they seem…


… Lured from my sleep, We danced with greed

Entranced by music and light indeed!

Then suddenly I knew my aim

The likeness of night and its flame!

… He winked and smiled beneath the cloud!

His song grew soft, not aloud!

His secret was discovered, he floated away

To the shimmery, faint cloud of gray!! …

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!"
