Marcelle loves poetry as a way of exploring her inner ramblings on the wonder of family life. She enjoys recording the immediate emotions of the day to day, these words came tumbling out – after not much sleep.  This site is mainly used as a ‘first draft’ repository.

Being a parent, especially a new parent, can be tough, frustrating and exhausting at times. But my words aim to remind of the wonder of it. The wonder of you and them. And the love that makes it possible. They record the high points of a serene sleeping baby, a happy active toddler, coffee with friends as well as the not so glamorous worn out moments – when even staring into space seems like hard work. They record the changing challenges and relationships, from expecting through to growing children.
