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

“WAITING AWAKE”

… I see the rain

Oh, so dark

Oh, how dark it is

I lie awake in bed

I lie waiting

Waiting for the moon

waiting for it to come

Waiting for something else, may be

May be the stars…

… Or may be a light

A light to show me

Show me where I am going

Or show me where I’ve been…

I lie waiting

Waiting in bed

Daybreak comes and I am asleep

I am no longer waiting

No longer waiting for the moon, nor

The stars, nor waiting for a sound!! …

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!"
