The theme for this year’s National Poetry Day is ‘light’ and to celebrate this week’s poem podcast is ‘From this Light’ by the Mexican poet, Coral Bracho. Coral is a poet unusually sensitive to light. Many of her poems are concerned with registering the delicate textures that light produces; how, in animating the world, it creates everything we see around us
This week’s poem is 'From This Light' by Coral Bracho from Mexico. The poem is read first in English translation by Katherine Pierpoint and then in Spanish by Coral.
