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

To my Father and his sudden death…


In a lush, moist blanket of grass I lay.

Gazing at stars, realizing this is-

My only way to cope!

While specks of light that shine through,

The darkness below a call of hope!

My hope shattered! The fiery pain immense,

Through the stream, bearing, possessed the light,

To a new life within!

Quiver for rest, my mind, my body,

For the one I suffered, has flown my rest!

A free spirit in this soul, is why he-

Claims no settle?

I loved him and in his departing,

He saw a piece of metal!

Appearance of strength not able to crack;

My feeling real, and now being locked!

This unending love, a roaring fire;

His silhouette, is my passionate desire!! …

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!
