7 thoughts on “JANINE IWAYA: Mom’s Poetry

  1. So touching. Hard to believe that with only 50 words you can capture and convey such emotion. Frame this one Janine. Place it where you can see it often and be reminded of your mom, your grandfather, the farm and those classic poems.

  2. You brought my own Mom’s love of words, acute observation, and insight to mind — thank you for this, Janine. Beautifully done.

  3. Children sometimes get shocked to realize their parents have had lives/experiences quite different to the way they live now. My mum learnt French, but I didn’t know until I was almost an adult. Well done!
