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 Bus: Overflowing

This week's Poetry Bus once again has Ms. Nanu as its driver. Our task this Easter weekend is to consider the concept of "excess, going over the top." Since this particular weekend involves my singing in the choir for Masses and services from Wednesday through Sunday, I spend many moments in quiet contemplation, thus causing my mind to fill to excess. Therefore, I've written a brief poem about consciousness with another great painting by Alex Grey to illustrate:
Between lyrics and dynamics
a dimension unfolds 
wherein my consciousness 
dwells - interprets 
language and intonation
of body and soul
one overflowing into the other
they- it- I
conflict - confide- coalesce
in conscious renewal.
