Kenning poem about mothers

A kenning poem can be a short poem or a long poem depending on what the writer prefers. The main purpose of a Kenning poem is to describe something without mentioning its name. It can be written as a riddle for the reader, or you can reveal the answer. They are very easy and fun to write, here is an example I wrote, I hope you enjoy it:

A mother’s love is special

Tension breaker
Peace maker
Great protector
Life director

Wise thinker
Coffee drinker
Hard worker
Bedroom lurker

Advice giver
Joyful liver
Future supporter
Issue sorter

Perfect cooker
Hopeful looker
Idea sharer
Amazing carer

    Hi Marinela .. yes mothers – and the idea of Kenning … I’d never heard of it – so thanks for enlightening me! Mothers certainly do all of those things ..

    We sort of did a crossword and a codeword crossword yesterday – didn’t get very far .. but Mum participated quite a lot and enjoyed the interaction – we were waiting to do an ambulance “dash” to the hospital .. all well & she got back safely .. no emergency!

    Cheers Hilary

    Then I read ABOUT you. What a big and wonderful surprise to learn your age!
    What a gift you have and are.

    oops that last comment was under the name of my old blog (not really functional anymore). This is the new one

  14. Beautiful poem.
    Well described, kind of like implied poetry

  15. Petty Witter says:

    Well written. This would make a lovely Mother’s Day card.

  16. Blond Duck says:

    I had never heard of those! How neat!

  17. Very good. I like haiku but seldom do it. I’d rather read it sometimes.

    I don’t know what you call it but I like to write short descriptive sentences that describes something almost like you just did but this is about a photo or a photograph on my blog.

  18. bob says:

    well done… really great poem. Thank you Marinela

  19. Poems says:

    You really know your mother so well, Been reading your poetry and I find them entertaining and wholesome. I can recommend this site to my daughter so she could learn poetry and I won’t worry. She’ll be reading a child-friendly site and a mind-stimulating one.

    Keep em coming.

    Absolutely wonderful. Big smiles here from this mom! 🙂

  21. Does indeed sound like mothers all over the world, such a beautiful testament, Marinela!

  22. Wanda says:

    Another beautiful poem from the great Marinela!

  23. Marinela,
    Hey girl, sorry I haven’t visited you for a while -and thanks for the follow (I thought you did that before -anyways. better so do it twice than not:):) )
    Kenning sounds better to me than haiku (smile). If I do any poetry, it’s without rhyme and without any rules, lol.
