Ellie belfiglio

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




The wintry Nun of the night goes out of her temples;

And slowly steps down under comets and stars.

She has held an holy vespers in the Helios’ alter;

And her robe flourishes above my sleeping town.

As a dog of devotion my emptiness squats on the doorsteps;

And I see it to lick lonely memories left by occasional guests.

As besotted my home spins her roof over near black squares,

And a cold gloomy wind is just kissing her windows tonight.


And the doorbell keeps her silence-

as a shell thrown out by the Ocean;

And the watch moans her dreams-

crucified on the wall.

If you come towards me,

As a moon full of a lone and emotion,

Show me only on hint,

I will be happy to open-

every gate of my soul!! …

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!"
