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

“WE CAN!!”



With all the twist and turn of life,

we can-

answer flower’s question with smile.

With the approach of sunset,

we can-

be patient for sunrise!

With long, silent nights,

we can-

think of those were near us.

With coming and going of dark thoughts,

we can-

share our secrets with trees.

With praying for peace in the world,

We can-

stay along with our lost soul.

With thinking about our childhood,

we can-

remember our handmade toys.

With the approach of old age,

we can-

walk long distance, think about trees.

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!"
