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!

Poetry Jam: Upon Reading Philosophy Late at Night

This week's Poetry Jam has Jessica cooking up some fascinating prompts. I've chosen the first one because I've been up late at night recently, researching and writing my dissertation. Below is my contribution to this week's jam pot:

Upon Reading Philosophy Late at Night
He stimulates her
with cerebral massage.
Inhaling - exhaling,
his ancient, whispering breath
intellectually touches
gently caresses, stirs.
Opening her mind wide
with vigorous contemplation,
she welcomes his
point of view.

  1. Well this is sensual feast!

  2. It's sensual alright. I never thought of philosophy as cerebral massage. What a cool image! Your verification word is "alsogica" which sounds as if it comes from Plato.

  3. A nice stimulating read indeed.

    Lovely share ~

  4. OOOOOOOHHHHH ... I love where you took us with this!

  5. Thank you, Dana!
    Lucy, Thanks, and yes, that vw would make a great subject of a poem, wouldn't it?
    Thanks, Heaven!
    Helen... Thanks! :)

  6. ha love the subtle sensualness of this...i think when one can stimulate the mind one is much further along than just the body...

  7. Thanks, Brian. True, all sensory stimulation travels through the neural channels.

  8. love the greenness in your blog.
    your poetry is divine.

  9. Greetings:
