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




In a far off land-

Beauty grows on a hillside, in a forest!

A sea of azure blue-

Delights all who wonder by…

And close at hand,

A million miles from home,

A puppy grows, beside a fence!

In the dark of night,

A miracle burst forth.

From buds to bloom, to begin anew,

The cycle of life!!

Leaves, soft, fuzzy, as green as a woodland glade,

Climb upon a stem of stem of sturdy strength,

To a pinacle-

Of petals, crinkly, delicate,

As blue as the morning sky,

Surrounding a heart of SUNRISE YELLOW!!!

A symbol of possibilities of renewal, of hopes and dreams,


Remember always the blue puppy!! …

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!"
