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
conscientious craziness controller.
Taxi driver, cuddle giver, endless listener, forever learning and enjoying every moment of this neverending wondeful journey.
food provider and cuddle giver
The rock that never crumbles
there for everyone and puts herself last!
Creative, home maker
medication measurer, giver, worrier.
I am not what you think I am, I am so more than that.
late night tweeter
Occasional chocolate briber
Monsters worst nightmare!
there and more
Beautiful, patient and selfless
respirateur and goddess
