Mother’s Light

a poem, read by its author, Merrie Joy Williams

Mother’s Light from ‘Open Windows’ (Waterloo Press, 2019) filmed during Lockdown

This is a reading of ‘Mother’s Light, filmed shortly after lockdown began. I originally released it to celebrate Mother’s Day; all of the wonderful mothers I know, all of the amazing women holding it down through lockdown.

With thanks to Paula, whose vivid maternal memories inspired the poem.
