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

9 13 Makalu West Face, West Pillar, And Southwest Face Sunset From East Col Camp

… For my sorrow, I built a wailing wall.

Stone upon stone in union with clay’s call.

Wetted by my tear.

Laid by trembling hand in fear.

Carving to build;

Not to wring or shield!

… I cry with lament a lovely there!

My broken heart’s ache with no share!

Against the immovable presence of thirst,

I drink the destitution of empty first!

… In breath of troubled wind, I shiver.

My soul and I are enveloped in cold to deliver-

Foreboding darkness, I know.

In creation’s vast, a blow!

“All Knowing- Somewhere”, LOVE HEARS NO!! …

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!"
