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

… Sometimes I look, wonder at the sights I see!

Green leaves waving gently, Robin nestling in a tree;

And the sun shining brightly, as far as I can see…

… Purple mountains in distance, so majestic and tall!

Sometimes they beckon me, I can almost hear them call.

Clear little streams, swiftly rushing down-

To flow into a river, near a quiet town…


… When evening shadows deepen and the sun is settling low,

The clouds of many colored hues all trimmed as farmers sow!

I hear the call of WHIPPOORWILL, as the night shadows softly fall;

And my heart is filled with gladness, with beauty of it all!! …

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!
