Asides from writing novels, UK author P.A.Davies has a true fondness for writing poems too. Some are light-hearted but some are born from the author's own struggle with depression, which he hopes will help others with similar issues, know that they are not alone. This podcast will bring you some of those poems in their narrated form.
A day for me
A poem about those times in our busy lives when we manage to take a moment for ourselves ... something we should do more often, if only to "reset" our minds back to an even keel.
In my mind, there is nothing more soothing than the sound of rainfall against the window when it's time for sleep.
This poem pays tribute to that sound and how it is truly beguiling and hypnotic.
Rod Maxwell reading "Blinded"
Sometimes, we all need to take stock of what we have, what we have achieved in life and be thankful for those things we have gained - emotionally or physically.
We need to remember that the grass isn't always greener and should hold on to what we have before we lose it all together.
Blinded: A poem by P.A.Davies, narrated by Rod Maxwell from local UK radio station, Radio Alty.
An Ode To Tea
A lighthearted poem dedicated to the wondrous beverage that is tea. Many varieties, many benefits and a taste beloved by most. How do you take yours?
A poem inspired by the pure magnificence of the Moon, shining above Skiathos town in October 2020. Nature has an unbridled way of being awesome.
At a time when I was feeling down, I sat in my garden just as nightfall was approaching and let the sights and sounds wash over me for a while. It was one of the most therapeutic things that I have experienced.
As a consequence of that particular event, I wrote this poem.
