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

“IT IS I…”



… I am where the valleys are deep.

And the mountains are high.

Where the wind whines.

And the lightening touches-

down from the sky…


… I am the seas that overflow-

in the fury of the storm.

And the rivers that run dry.

All the birds of air,

and the beasts of the field-

know it is I…


… I am the flame of light-

that brightens up the night.

The quencher of the thirst,

the giver of life,

all who walk in my image.

And see beauty, know it is I… !!

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!"
