    Short and succinct, looking at men's attitude towards women. It depends on each different man.
    Ideally 'A woman is a/ Mother with new light'.

    Ah yes, a woman is an avatar of the universe's creative power. We are uplifted as we aspire to be worthy of her. Yes, the light she brings is new. Only an arrogant would suppose she has nothing to teach him. (Report) Reply

    But what is a woman for you
    a bride to be
    a mom

    Just for the record, our dog loves my wife as a mother, a companion, yes, even a saint. Maybe a lion would be a better beast of prey.

    really enjoyed this poem. It is sharp as the edge of a knife and also soothing and comforting to the soul. A woman represents so many things and lets the mind wander. Beautiful work. Thank you for reading my poetry as well. (Report) Reply
