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: Still Life

This week's Poetry Jam has asked us to write about a Still Life. Well, I've had my Still Life posted on this blog for over a year, and I just 'remodeled' and decided to remove it. Making its reappearance, I present to you my Circular Still Life, a gathering of objects found in my office, some of which are souvenirs of Dublin. The complete collection consists of my lovely fern, a "That was Easy" button from Staples, a coaster from Connemara, an empty bottle that once held Tipperary water, a de-stress ball in the shape of a globe, and a few extra pretzels tossed in for flavor. ; ) 

Circular Still Life

Circular Still Life Haiku
Through simplicity
circularity's presence
gathers the spirit.

  1. I like that. I've read it a few times now. Everything is in flux, it's true.

  2. Yes, Jessica! "That was easy!" ; )
    (Jessica, do you have a Staples office supply store near you? If you don't, then my response will probably make no sense at all to you.)

  3. Very nice. I love both your still life photo and your poem!

  4. nice...it is like a breath to be pondered...esp that second line...

  5. Stellar haiku! Circle of life indeed ....

  6. Mary, Thank you!
    Brian, Thanks. Pondering, yes...
    Thank you, Helen.
