Harold A. Workman Jr. Releases THE WORKS OF A. WORKMAN
Passionate writer and hard-working contractor Harold A. Workman Jr. carefully crafts or crafted poetry that echoes a mind that can approximate the straightness of beams and the strength of pillars in a second and understand the lie of the land in a heartbeat. Yet he also writes with a romanticism to better build the forms of life's losses, pain, griefs, happiness and success-like the good workman and family man that he is, he has a compassionate and heartwarming spirit that is evident in the poetic anthology The Works Of A. Workman. The title of the book is a pun: Harold A. Workman is also "a workman," a wordsmith with capable hands literally and figuratively. The anthology aims to motivate readers to look at life in a more profound and joyful way.
Workman is at times poignant, deep and mystical-touching chords in the heart and soul as one reads through the collection. He has a remarkable facility with word play, and the emotion and thought he brings to his poetry can bring both smiles and tears to readers. Through it all runs (amazingly) a practical work ethic that seeks to balance and make everything into a harmonious whole, an ethic that says, even when it seems better to renounce, give-up, surrender from the sometimes bumpy roller coaster ride that is life, that to continue or plod on with a good heart and a will to finish one's work, one may finally see the light shine at the end of the day. Thus, Workman shows readers that all life is a great adventure worth trying, worth putting your heart and soul in, worth investing time and effort on, and worth the expensive foundation of time spent in study and thought.
