Mother’s Day is here again, the special time when we think of Mothers past and present. Most of us will agree, our Mums play a huge role in our lives. This is a time when we can show our appreciation for all those selfless acts of love over the years. Why not be original this year and write your Mum a poem?
Oh no, I hear you groan, I’m not a poet. No special writing skills are required. The rules are simple – open your heart and let your words and thoughts flow. You don’t have to worry about rhyme, though some of you are talented in selecting the right words to produce a special rhythm. My rhymes always sound forced, so I prefer writing more free form poems.
If you like playing with words, let your thoughts of appreciation for your Mum fall randomly onto the page. Give the words time to settle, then gaze over them, rearranging words and phrases into lines until they sound right.
Once you’re happy with the result experiment with presentation. A little creativity can go a long way. A poem written from the heart, presented with love, will look and sound great to your Mother, no matter how you choose to present it. You’ll be giving Mum a gift she’ll treasure for ever.
What better way is there to appreciate your Mum on Mother’s Day?
