Lies a rolling streams!

A place to go and think

And plan my affairs!

… The water rolls and rolls, it is cold and clear.

Stones at bottom smooth and round.

At the water edge, moonlight glistens.

As time slowly passes, rolling water listens!

… Then the crickets come with all their sound.

Breeze carry them all over.

Stars twinkle high above a tree,

While tree sways this way or that way.

… The night air has an aroma, so sweet,

Of pine trees, so green!

Shadows of the forest trees dance,

A ballet no one ever seen…

… In awe I sit, breathe the beauty I took in.

Somehow clears my mind that brook.

I think of tomorrow, will it have delight?

Should I leave today’s affair in my heart?? …

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!
