Ellie belfiglio

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



Ellie belfiglio


… Old scenes and faces recalled in mind

Left with me that dark night.

And dreading what would be my fate

Engulfed my soul with fright…

… How could I know what the hours would hold?

Yet the choice become painfully clear.

Faded memories could ring painfully true

Or there would be little to fear…


… A new dress and hairdo, though crisp and untouched

Did not change what I could not erase!

The panic arising as my car found its spot

Where the dreaded appointment took place…

… My feet numb, but I neared the door

Unwilling to take such a chance

When suddenly strong arms and a haunting face

Whisked me over the floor to dance…

… And it wasn’t until the wee hours at home

I reflected on all that was done

And realized with glee, while sipping my tea

Class reunion really are fun!! …

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!"
