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

“LITTLE ACRE POND”

… So near the fence line,

Edge of woods, like shrine,

There was an acre pond,

Compelling, mysterious, profound!

… Climb up incline-

Of dirt and rocks’ chine,

Through bushes or skies,

Exasperating with cries!

… There I see the pond, With few stones around;

And some grass;

And leaves and twigs with class-

Have docked in the pass…

…A gray old pass, no ducks or fish;

An old guardian maple tree’s wish-

Standing tall, bent, gnarled, not on leash!

… On lingering, looking deep-

Little acre pond, unspoiled for keep-

Compelling, mysterious, it does peep!! …

Waterlily pond with little stone bridge

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!
