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




… If I could be a raindrop, I would kiss each rose of morn;

and slowly trickle down its stem and rest upon its thorn.

If I could be a gust of wind, the kites I’d ride on high,

and hide among the clouds to chase them across the sky…

… If I could be a rainbow, I would follow the passing storm,

and be a colored arch from sky signaling no harm cause it’s norm.

If I could be a butterfly, far and free,

I would touch every flower and flutter close to THEE…


… If I could be autumn leaf, my colors, I would proudly show,

until the chilling winds of winter lay me beneath the snow.

If I could be a snowflake on winter’s harsh breath I’d ride,

and take my pure white blanket and hide at countryside…

… If I could be a sparrow, the sign of spring that I be,

I’d know I’m always protected cause HIS EYES IS ALWAYS ON ME!! …





Author: elliebelfiglio

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!"
