After two years of C. E. Ayr, and this blog which I set up to showcase my short stories, I have decided to inflict another aspect of my writing onto an unwary public.
I have been writing poetry for longer than I can remember, and have been fortunate enough to have encountered some musicians talented enough to transform my words into songs.
I find it fascinating to hear how others read and picture and convert my ideas into sounds.
To date the spectrum includes ballads, folk-rock-country, bluegrass and heavy metal!
I hope you will enjoy their creativity as much as I do.
