Stuck in a Blackbird's Grove (Poem and Video)



Here is a poem that I wrote in 2006, but I decided to record and translate it to video over this weekend. It uses royalty free music from Incompetech.com. The piece playing behind the spoken word vocal is Acralate, a selection with African influences.

"Stuck in a Blackbird's Groove" is a blues poem about one level of unrequited love.

I enjoyed watching your work come alive Nordette. I might have to play around and video some of my poetry in the near future.

Thanks for sharing this.

I don't even know what to say. It's like you were looking in my window or something. I do remember reading this back when you first wrote it. Touched me then and the music/video/spoken version is just, well, I don't even know what to say.
