"Everglades Litany" by Geoffrey Philp


In anticipation of Caribbean American Heritage Month, I’ll be running a series called Video Fridays. I’m starting the series with a video of my own, “Everglades Litany.” The poem was first published in xango music (Peepal Tree Press) and the images are from these sources:

Give thanks to Theo for his help with choosing a video camera and for teaching me how to use Windows Movie Maker.

For next week's Video Friday, I'll be featuring a poem by CM Clark.

Have a great weekend!

Blessed be good poetry that enters and betters the day.

I'm looking forward to Fridays now even more than before.
Thanks, Rethabile.
