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

The only tree I ever see always smiles.

Its branches never move as if they’re caught in isles!

No rain or storm bend this tree with woes.

Forever silence among them glows.

The children rest comfortably in the bosom of the river;

And all Branches join in a point to deliver.

Mother tree, heavy and thick, roots very deep;

Somewhere beyond my imagination and grip!

Our mutual boredom gracefully bear-

The silent of the moment with any tear.

The smiling tree endures the frame.

In captivity, there is nothing to claim…

… Here, tree and I both smile and unite.

Tree and I have been framed when we were in flight!

We don’t need nourishment to stay alive.

Tree and I are just pictures, for love, we strive!! …

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!
