I untied the album’s ties.

In sleep’s dark cage-

Pictures of past laid in each page.

Forgotten images, discolored faces,

Indifferent eyes, sad places.

Dusty pictures of ones who now dead;

Smileless lips, old stories of dread…

… Each page seemed like a wall,

A wall so alone, so sad, and sometimes tall!

Each picture, old or new-

Was a window in my view…

… Those eyes, so silent and proud;

Those faces, bewildered among crowd,

Were flying out of window;

Carrying their stories to the rainbow…

… In one window my eyes met-

My mother’s eyes in sunset.

I wiped the dust from her young face;

Begged her not to leave that place!

She sighed, then smiled at my grief.

The answer came to me as a relief;

Which window would I fall from like a leaf!! …

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!
