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

Huddling in the long shadow of winter,

Roots tied to the dark soil.

The magnolia tree now sends a glow into-

The cold whiteness.

Its tiny purple buds candles,

Celebrating spring’s birthday.

Huddling into the long shadow of winter,

Rooted in the soil of self-doubt,

I, too, send a glow into the cold whiteness.

Tiny candles of hope celebrating my rebirth…

Soon our blossoms will be shimmering,

In summer’s incandescent.

Its meaning clear for all to see,

In the deepest despair there can yet-

Be a glow of hope!! …

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!
