WORDSONGS–3, Recovery is the third album in The Wordsongs Series. The pains of life do not spare any of us. We all struggle and look for something to ease the pain. This book follows the broken dreams of a lonely man who used drugs and alcohol to cope with the pain in his life. Observe his broken dreams and struggles on side one and his re-awakening to a new life in recovery on side two. In this inspirational and innovative book, C. Steven Blue presents another great set of heartfelt wordsongs.
The Wordsongs Series:
Each book in this series contains 20 pieces designed to be similar in scope to a music record album, with side one and side two, but instead of songs it is comprised of a style of poems that are called wordsongs. Each book is a concept album, with a general theme running through it, told in verse format.
Wordsongs are the original creation of C.Steven Blue, who also created a definition for this concept:
word'song, n. [AS. wordsong.]
1. a poem that is like a song or could be a song
2. verses that tell a story in song-like rhythm,
often with a refrain
3. a song that you read
My intention with this blog is to catalog and update my progress as I pursue my writing career in retirement. I will be posting about poetry events I am involved in, as well as the publishing and performing of my work. Here you can observe my adventures. Feel free to comment.
