How To Be A Woman

As a man it has been, and continues to be, a source of wonder to see how most women exist in this decreasingly manmade world. The planet is for everyone, the world was grabbed by men. It was into this world 15 years ago my daughter was born. With joy I have been able to stand by her, get to know her, and learn from her, as she has grown into the ongoing change the world is experiencing. I am so full of pride and love for her it can sometimes burst out the eyes ♥️ Happy birthday!

Details culled from the site:
Entries can be posted as comments below, before 11.59pm, Friday evening, 17 August, NZ time.
As usual, I am sole judge and arbiter (until I find someone to share the joy with me), I (we) can be suborned, and the usual cheapskate prize is the acclamation of the blog-reading public, and maybe a drink if I’m in the same part of the planet as you some time soon - I do travel a bit

Here's mine - “The Rage Of The Masses” by MiramarMike, aged 40 1/2

There’s been leaders a-plenty with visions galore
I’ve seen IT Departments with geeks, technology and more
Yet rarely have I experienced, with heavy heart I tell you,
The happy marriage of 1 with 2

And so - "Release your secret inner bard!"
