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
One handed typist
An individual in her own right
Humble, self-examining, never give up-erer!
Jack of all meals, master of none
late night tweeter
Little foot tickler
The rock that never crumbles
Always on the go!
Stumbling tweeting loon
NASCAR driver to doctor appointments
always there ..any time of day or night
always being there
