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

Blazed in desire

Leave a comment


The heat that absorbed from light,

Feels cold, why am I black?

At times I am warm and feel white,

Then I send the reflection of light back.

Often in the stillness of night,

I’m cold, freezing, all alone.

How can I take this blight?

But dawn comes, let’s itself known…

Sometimes the lights impart.

Feeling warm so as my soul sweat.

Just before sweat floods my heart,

Sun will start to set…

Some nights I burn, I’m in fire.

Like a kindled light when souls tie-

light’s source is blazed in desire!

The aura seems never die!

Midday comes, I feel the shroud,

Then the warming light does retreat;

Yet my life turn into the cloud;

And blocks out light and heat!! …

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!
