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!

Apple Trees

These two poetic statements allude to the Adam and Eve story. 
They were written to bring a perspective of femininity. 

Apple Trees by Olbinski

Expression
Muck and mire:
Source of life
truest milk coagulates
to form original temptation.

Little men who have bitten
the fruit of the Tree
claim
it’s simply words,
blame
it on a few Voices of Eve.

Feminine sources
of life- soul- strife,
open yourselves
to express
the mellifluous flow
of Divinest Truth

Fallen Apple

I am the fallen apple.
Ripe with ardor,
I drop from provisional support
and roll into fertile mire
of fecundity, autonomy.
Temptation.
I’ll not rot in isolation.
