Like me, many of us will never again be with our mums for Mother’s Day. So, I’m celebrating mine with two of her poems. Mum didn’t have a lot of time to write as she was a full time foster carer.

Poem: Another Day Like This by Chantelle Atkins

I like poetry and generally prefer those that rhyme. This doesn’t, but something about the story and rhythm appealed to me. Another day like this Comfort in favourite t-shirt The one with the stars on it And daughter’s old hoodie, the big blue one And jeans that need a … Poem: Another Day Like This


It Snowed Again Last Night

Occasionally I write poetry and I found this in a file of unpublished stories and poetry in the loft in a box. I must have been feeling very melancholy at the time. When I do write, they are always little stories. I’ll hope to write more next year. It’s fun to have a different medium… Continue reading It Snowed Again Last Night
