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




In you

I see the deep ocean

behind the darkness of your eyes;

I see the brightness of the sun

at its highest point.

I see the radiance of stars

in the darkest night.

I see all behind the darkness of your eyes…

In you

I see the freedom of your soul.

I see your longing for love,

I see the generous heart slowly opening,

And then closes in fear of that love.

I see all behind the darkness of your eyes…

In you

I see my heart entwined with yours.

My soul reaching the depths of yours.

I see my adoring glance reflect in your eyes;

And I wish you see yours in mine…

But what sadness…

For in me

you don’t see the me in you;

And I, you in me!! …

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!"
