Poetry Life & Times publishes video with Aberjhani's poem

9/11/2014 12:17:00 AM

by Nordette Adams


Two videos have been produced with poetry by Aberjhani, music by Mark "Rahkyt" Rockeymoore, and production by Nordette Adams. A European literary magazine and its sister Paper.li have published both.
The England-based literary magazine Poetry Life & Times has published the poetry video "And Then the Rain God Screamed for Love." The video puts in motion a poem by Savannah, Georgia, author and poet Aberjhani; however, poet Nordette Adams of New Orleans, Louisiana, recites the work.

Adams produced the video in 2012, and it came to the attention of Robin Ouzman Hislop, the editor and publisher of Poetry Life & Times, this year when his colleague, British poet Sara Russell, featured it on the magazine's sister website, the Paper.li curation, Poetry Lifetimes. Initially Russell featured video of Aberjhani's "An Angel for New Orleans," which the poet recites himself. She then asked Adams to recommend other videos, so the New Orleans poet sent Russell links to the sultry "Rain God" as well as video by another New Orleans poet and Adams's own poem video "Misery," which addresses gun violence in New Orleans. Russel chose "Rain God," she said, because of Adams's voice and the rain sounds. However, Russell also featured Adams's video poem, "Misery," as well as the two Aberjhani videos at her personal site PoetryVox.

Both "And then The Rain God Screamed for Love" and "An Angel for New Orleans" are included on the spoken word CD The Goddess and The Skylark, which Mark "Rahkyt" Rockeymoore produced and for which he composed the music. Both poems are also included in Aberjhani's collection Visions of a Skylark Dressed in Black.
