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

This poem is written by my husband, Dr. Valentine Belfiglio. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.


The stench of death

Chokes my breathe.

The ground is red

Around the dead.

I hear shrill cries

Ignored by flies.

A cold, stiff arm

Once did much harm.

The roaring fires

From funeral pyres,

Dot the wet land

Where victors stand.

Some soldiers grin,

While deep within.

There is a fear

Of sword and spear.

Sweat, tears and pain

Mix with cold rain,

As widespread grief

Knows no relief.

Some lost an eye

While others cry.

Some gain great fame,

Others feel shame!!!! …


Dr. Valentine Belfiglio

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!
