Ellie belfiglio

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



Ellie belfiglio


… Marvelous stillness…

The world, the stars pervade in

With serenity of their rays


… Everlasting security

To shed upon the earth

The assurance…


… The young moon re-cured…

Shined low in west!

Was a slender shaving thrown up

From a bar of gold?

… Sea extended its perfect level

To perfect circle

Of a dark horizon…

… Part of the scheme of a safe universe

Was the beating of sea and heart…


… On each side of two deep folds of water

Permanent and sober

On the wrinkled shimmer…

… A few white swirls of foam

Bursting into a low hiss!

A few waterlets, a few ripples

A few undulations…


… Subsided splashing gently

Calmed down at last

Into circular stillness…

Of water and sky

With the black speck of the moving

Remaining hull

Everlastingly in pits center!! …

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!"
