dc.description.abstract Screaming Azaleas is a set of songs about life in the South. The focus of this work is similar to a common thematic motif in classic southern literature--the idea of being trapped in an endless cycle of disasters. The first poem reflects images of life and light through the eyes of a mother's child. The second poem deals with the sharp reality of death and the disbelief of a mother who has lost her son. Finally, the last song is the mother's last moment with her son, a moment which takes place at the gravesite. The recurring azalea, a southern flower which blooms only once a year for a very short time, reflects the fragile, temporary existence of life.
