Introduction:

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!

Bicycle Dreams

This photo was from a former "Poetry Jam" exercise. I thought it would be appropriate today, for we're about to receive a few inches of snow tonight. Perhaps, my own bicycle is having a few 'dreams' like these: 


Bicycle Dreams

Frozen flakes,
each one different from the next
tumble gently 
to fulfill their divine calling
reforming this landscape
into a wintry haven,
providing a cooling respite
for parked bicycles
which dream 
of the fun in the rolling 
through those good ol'
steamy 
'dog days' of summer.

Winter Firmament

Winter Firmament 

Brisk night air,
unfettered firmament:
the stars whisper
ancient secrets
in this evening sky
touching a distant dawn.
