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

…Sand, white and flowing, forever present

Its promise to hold secrets and catch tears.

We stand on its edge making vows to improve

All the while holding on to our fears…


… Sand can be golden and glitter.

Its dunes hold the promise of life.

We respect its first right to be there

In life thunderous whirlwind of strife…


… strange tide washes harsh and wild

Taking with it a few grains of beauty.

Tide relentless and pounding… sand cowers

Although proud, sand takes on its duty…


… Bright sun and warmth, sand’s redeemer!

Tide leaves, sand is free to shine.

Sand was there all along, now the storm is over.

Sand, white and flowing, beauty presents for all time!! …

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!
