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.
