This is a poem I wrote following the loss of my mum. It is a tricky time trying to navigate the years after the loss of a loved one. I find that writing poems helps me begin to process the things I go through.
I truly enjoy the process of new creation
And so I went for a second stop frame animation.
This time, no paper, just a flexible chum
So check out Lil Mo for a little animated fun.
I’m indulging myself in a little self-celebration
For managing to conquer my first stop motion animation.
It’s ever so simple, but something I wanted to do
So here’s hello beautiful, especially for you!

Fathers Day Poem
by Ms Moem.
Fathers Day falls on Sunday the 16th of June. I wrote this poem ‘Proper Dads’ to acknowledge just how valuable our amazing fathers are!
This video is A Poem About Daughters by © Ms Moem.
It talks about how, as a mother to a daughter, you watch them turn into young women, just like you once were. They forge their own paths, yet some how, their hopes and dreams because equally important, and sometimes even more than your own.
Having a daughter is a joy, but it is bittersweet, as whilst your precious girls are blossoming, of course you are ageing. No-one can stop the clock. Enjoy your daughters – I am! 🙂
This poem was written in memory of my Grandma.
A grandmother is a woman who holds a very special place in the family. If you would like to read the words, you can find my poem about grandma here.
Promise Me is a poem written by Ms Moem.
Voiced by Jozefa Fawcett.
This poem is one of my collection of wedding poems. Promise Me takes a form that makes it suitable as a wedding reading, or even as your wedding vows. It is a poem that sums up the promises that you would hope your bride or groom would make for you, beyond “To have and to hold” and “To love and to cherish”.
If you would like to use this poem at your wedding ceremony, please do drop me a line and let me know. And I love to hear how my poems are received!
Dance Floor is a poem written by me, and you can hear it here, read by the wonderful Jozefa Fawcett!

Domestic Violence. Don’t Cover It Up.
Don’t hide from the world with your bruises and cuts.
You don’t deserve a life that is tarnished with violence.
None of this is your fault. Don’t suffer in silence.
The video above is a hard-hitting and powerful anti domestic violence message, created by Lauren Luke aka panacea81 on youtube, in association with Refuge.
If you are a woman experiencing domestic abuse – whether physical, emotional, psychological or financial – head to refuge.org.uk or call Freephone 0808 2000 247 for advice and support.
Don’t cover it up.
