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

“I’VE DONE IT ALL IN MY HEAD”

… I’ve flown with an eagle to heaven’s door.

Gone with the shark to the ocean floor.

Eaten polar bear, goat, and boar.

All this I’ve done… and more!

… I’ve been to places the devil won’t go.

Walked with a vampire in the morning glow.

Planted my seeds in a running doe.

This too I’ve done and more.

… I’ve eaten toadstools with a rusty knife.

Escaped a burning house with just my life.

Spent many nights when I was rife.

I’ve done all these and more.

… I’ve slept with a panther in his forest-bed.

Followed where the gargoyles led.

Held a man under water till he was dead.

Yes, I’ve done it all inside my head!! …

Author: elliebelfiglio

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!
