Tea on an Autumn Morning

Welcome! A few years ago, I discovered an application that artists employ in their works to bring cultural awareness to their audiences. Having discerned this semiotic theory that applies to literature, music, art, film, and the media, I have devoted the blog, "Theory of Iconic Realism" to explore this theory. The link to the publisher of my book is below. If you or your university would like a copy of this book for your library or if you would like to review it for a scholarly journal, please contact the Edwin Mellen Press at the link listed below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Flow III

Flow III
Tears amid the cheers
reaching for brass, 
thirsting for the flow
only to turn away parched
tongue swelling in dry air
hot with the fever of hope.

  1. I'm torn between image of horse and rider with this one. I can't get that parched tongue out of my head and I just keep seeing a tired horse after a race, BUT I do really like the poem.

  2. Hmmm...interesting image, Kat. My focus is an individual, trying to catch the proverbial 'brass ring on the carousel of life', feeling the dizziness and fatigue of the ride (or running in circles...multiple meanings there, too), parched for answers and passionate with hope.
