Release your inner poet!
Take a minute to add a line to this group 'kenning' poem started by Penzance WILD mums and Anna Maria Murphy.
A kenning is a simple poem that works like a riddle – you describe a subject without ever naming it. How would you describe 'a mum' in just two or three descriptive words?

We asked poets to curate their own versions of this poem as part of our travelling exhibition: Story of Mum: Mums making an exhibition of ourselves. Watch some of the performances here.
The poem changes order whenever you refresh the page.
We'd love you to add YOUR words.
OUR POEM: MUM
a lover of live
NASCAR driver to doctor appointments
magic boogie-queen amazing cook
Giver of giggles
under-appreciated and adored at the same time
24×7 customer service
Proud loving blessed
the person who broke my phone
paper-doll making, inspiration-seeking, quietly ambitious, devoted to the happiness of others
Twitter addicted tea drinker
Happy, narky but delicious
Little foot tickler
Humble, self-examining, never give up-erer!
Limitless and strong (sometimes)
Overwrought, frazzled and shouty
