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

article-0-1411A287000005DC-855_964x724… Stardust, streamers, jesters, dreamers,

In the sky, glittering like diamonds!

Ladies and dancers, handsome romancers,

How lost in enchantment am I!

… The rainbow of music, this symphony of colors,

Round the guests swirling, twirling, turning,

Performing his tricks, the saint of Harlequins,

At every girl’s behest, laughing, crooning, crying…

… Descants and minstrels, champagne and crystals,

As the hours pass them by, whirling,

Curled, braided tresses, a lam ode dresses,

Soaring as high like birds…

… How incredible it is, my very first real party!

Off the emeralds in the tree, the moonlight reflecting,

What magical enchanter has turned me into this?

A flirtatious little tease, a burning bright comet…

… For coats and bustles, hurry and hustle,

Oh, the morning draws too quickly nigh!

I remember it always, dark, silent hallways,

They disappear… and leaves behind,

And in a whisper, in a blink-

Only a sigh!! …

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!
