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

“My Lord?” She asks. He speaks: “I cherish you,

“Dear queen. No other man has ever known-

“A wife so noble, steadfast, brave and true.

“And yet, I played a part, was not alone,

“But strove an equal there wth Gods and men,

“In actions bards will sing through all the years.

“I need to share such special hours again.”

The great Queen speaks, her cheeks wet with tears.


“And what of me? I prayed that Zeus might spare-

“Your life, might save our island kingdom too;”

And so He has. Would you come once more then dare-

To test His patience?  Is not rest your due?

“My love,” He says, “It’s Zeus who bids me go,

“To sail into the sunrise, past those straits-

“That guard our little inland sea, and know-

“I have no choice. We answer to our fates.”

But Gods deal fairly when they don’t destroy!

Who knows? Out there maybe another Troy!! …

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!"

Let everybody be nice!
