Poetic Beats #4

Poetic Beats

Welcome to this weeks edition of Poetic Beats with Howard B and Davy D, recorded on the 7th of August 2017 on Red Kite Radio.

The poetic theme for August is Summer and  for this month’s first instalment we look at the poem, Chasing Butterflies, using it as a metaphor to highlight the beauty and struggle of writing poetry.

To hear the recording, please press the arrow on the left of the sound bar below.

Enjoy, and any thoughts are welcomed.


Beautiful metaphor, Davy…and great visuals – a lavender hedge, a playground, scribbles on a half empty page…. Chasing Butterflies is an incredible poem and your discussion brought it to life.

Another good episode of Poetic Beats, Dave. A powerful way of bringing the poems to life. Most impressed that you can remember your childhood(!) – sorry, that was an easy one.
