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

Darkness, velvet smooth, all encompassing.

Setting softly a warm blanket of blackness,

Quiet, softly, soothing, peaceful with its unvoiced words.

Filling the air with thoughts yet unknown…

Floating, feather light on a sea of air!

Body weightless, drifting gently.

Light, faintly shining then brightening slowly.

Warm, gently illuminating…

Shadows flickering images, dancing obscurely against the mind’s wall.

Hazy, features yet unclear.

Love flowing strongly, senses tingling.

Boldly shown, yet shyly held.

Emotions raging rampant, fully felt, fiery red, warming the soul.

Realization sparkling clear, refreshingly sweet.

Knowing, yet unsure of what it knows.

Shadows swiftly fading, images yet unseen.

Darkness creeping in, light melting away.

Unknown loves, dreams not yet dreamed.

Unfelt emotions, lives not yet lived.

Fading, wafting away, back into the future!! …



Author: elliebelfiglio

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!
