Ellie belfiglio

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



Ellie belfiglio


… Ah, the season, that season-

is upon us.

It is in this season,

I stand in solitude;

and when I come to you,

… transcendent of physical bondage-

… that I was born unto-

… and released by an almost perverse proclamation of piety!

… In front of your feet I place-

… the spirit of the eagle-

… the strength of the bear-

… the courage of the lion…

… With the help of our outstretched hand,

… I arise!

… With it you bestow mercy.

At once, I am poised in elegance next to you.

… We merge together, in this way-

… with the knowledge of the forefathers-

… we are fulfilled-

… following the sun-

… under their guidance!

Rejoicing as one, hand in hand…

… Now and forever, we live eternity in one dawn;

invested with the miracle of life!! …

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!"
