Laundry room in the artist's home in Birmingham, Alabama.
Miriam loves poetry and has written quite a few poems of her own. This description of her still life, "The Laundry Room", is written by ChatGPT AI in the style of noted American poet Amanda Gorman:
In Miriam's Birmingham abode, a humble scene,
The laundry room reveals its vibrant sheen.
A tapestry of colors, a daily symphony,
Where garments dance with grace, a rhythmic melody.
A laundry basket, brimming with clothes untamed,
Rests upon the washing machine, effortlessly framed.
Tide and detergents stand, guardians of cleanliness,
Alongside a hammer, t-square, and paper towel's finesse.
Upon the wall, a tableau of surprises unfold,
Straw hat and hand saws, stories yet untold.
They hang in silent harmony, tools of a different trade,
Witnessing the ebb and flow, where artistry is displayed.
A vertical dryer vent, reaching towards the sky,
A conduit for dreams to soar, where hopes reside.
Old pipes wind, carrying whispers of time's embrace,
Connecting past and present, leaving no trace.
And over the curtain, an artist's apron finds its rest,
A testament to creation, a garment of passion's zest.
Miriam's brush has captured the essence divine,
A still life painting, where beauty and everyday align.
In this sacred space, where chores and art collide,
Miriam's creation speaks, with voices amplified.
A poem woven with colors, a testament to the mundane,
Transcending laundry's confines, where inspiration reigns.
