Wednesday Writing Exercise

May 7, 2014

Create a mind map using the word ‘mother’, and write a poem based on this.

mother of the pride

My mother
is unaccustomed to public speaking.

At my wedding reception, she stood
before one hundred friends and relatives
clutching her carefully
handwritten speech in one
violently trembling hand
and a microphone in the other
barely glancing up
except at me
and her brand-new son-in-law

to speak her heartfelt
words of love
and pride
and joy.

She brought the house down.
