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



Ellie belfiglio


Ah, the season, that season

is upon us.

It is in this season

I stand in solitude

and when I come to you

transcendent of physical bondage

that I was born unto

released by an almost perverse proclamation of piety…

In front of your feet, I place

the spirit of the eagle

the strength of the bear

the wisdom of the owl

the courage of the lion…

With the help of our outstretched hand

I arise.

With it you bestow mercy

at once, I am poised in elegance next to you…

We merge together, in this way.

With the knowledge of forefathers

we are fulfilled.

Following the sun

under their guidance!

Rejoicing as one, hand in hand…

Now and forever we live eternity in one dawn!

Invested with the miracle of life!! …

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!"
