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

… How does the sun touch you,

As it greets you in the morn?

Does it hit your mind with thoughts-

Of love or memories of scorn?

… How does love touch you-

In the early morning light?


Does it reach out for all to grasp,

Or is it held in to cause a day of flight?

… How does the end of day touch you,

As the sun gives way to the moon?

Does your head rest on the pillow-

With thought of joy or gloom?? …

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!"
