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




… Each night the silence speaks to me.

The inner- most thoughts of day roams free.

Its “VOID” is loud and clear.

It whispers in my ear…

… Tis only in silence, you can hear your inner soul.

The clarity, magnificent, for you are in control.


I listen to my goals, my plans for today.

I create what ought to be, what may.

I create “whatever comes my way”…

Tis a time for your talents to surface and come forth.

Tis a time for you to figure out your values and your worth…

… Listen to the silence for tis you that has the floor.

No one to interrupt, no one to close the door!! …

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!"
