my mum

i sometimes called her mummy

when she was my primary school teacher

i still call her mummy sometimes

stylish as her younger days

fitter than her daughters

when you get the chance to sit it out or dance

she always dances

an ever present zest for life

and new experiences

she convinced her parents to let her finish school

played netball in her 70’s platform shoes

once won a highest heel competition

at a fair when we were children

she brought me almonds when i studied

and imbued me with a love of learning

now also an adored nani

this heart of our family
