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




… You are a man of earth.

And I am a woman of sky.

Your roots are solid as the trees.

My spirit soars with winds up high…

… Your mountains tower from below,

like pillars anchored to your land.

They remind me of your presence;

your ever outstretched hand…

… Your waters catch my drops of rain-

on days they can’t help but flow.

And then contemplate the light-

from my sunshine and moon’s glow…

… You watch me dance amongst the stars,

while I make wishes on few.

I wish to always spread my wings.

I wish to share my life with you…

… And when my stars begin to fade,

and I am through soaring out in space,

that is when twilight lights my sky;

and join earth in an embrace!! …

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!"
