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




Gently lay your lips on mine so I can taste your soul;

then I will have a sweet moment to treasure and to be whole.

For I know you in so many ways, yet still I feel not whole;

so lay your gentle lips on mine so I can taste your soul.

I’ve seen your naked heart, its goodness shining through.

In every little thing you say and everything you do.


I’ve heard your thoughts from time to time, your wisdom deafens me!

That voice so clear and full of strength, just sends me to my knee.

I’ve inhaled your every scent, your sweetness seems to bloom.

I only need to close my eyes to feel you in the room.

I’ve touched your flesh a thousand times of casual embrace;

and every time I’ve had to put my longings in their place.

You see, I know you so completely, yet still I feel not whole!

So lay your gentle lips on mine so I can taste your soul!! …

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!"
