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

“METAMORPHOSIS”

A caterpillar single- mindedly weaves-

Slowly, methodically a cocoon lives!

Protection from the elements, so vile,

… So do I in an isle!

Feeling safe at last, he sleeps;

Stirring not, feeling nothing, not even she leaps!

The caterpillar goes through seasons that cast,

… So am I in contrast!

Spring arrives!

The cocoon slowly breaks, reveals and rives!

… THE BUTTERFLY…

His wings unfold for the fly;

Finally feeling freedom after strife!

… So shall I feel life!! …

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!"
