Welcome Back!

I’m thrilled to introduce our first guest post, by Creative Writing for Creative Mothers participant, Amelia Hickman. This beautiful poem was inspired by Week One of the course. Amelia says; ‘It started off as a list poem from lines of lullabies I sing all the time and then morphed into something a bit different.’ I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s morphed into something quite wonderful.

Via Lactea

The moon deep sky

swathes about

her face, dew-soft


eyes flutter

heart against heart

little moth,

once I felt you


innumerable stars sing

breath soft

lulla, lullaby

satiated you sleep

your dreams

the luminous

wake of a ship
