We are a day late with this but still we soldier on with another challenge title as we say a huge thanks to Rufus "Riddles" Burghs.
His second time with the Baton and truly fully deserved I am sure you agree. The submissions are again to be applauded and I thank each and every one who took part by way of posting comments or writing a poem or three or four too.
It is an easy task at times to get new Baton holders such are the friendships and wonderful writers we have on the site.
Now again a rousing farewell departure to Rufus but keep the fanfare going as we Rhe Musketeers present the new holder of Challenge Baton 79.
The 79th Baton remains in the great and vastly diverse continent of Africa.
It gives me great pleasure to present this challenge to a man who can create a mood where love, affection and musky perfumes mixes with the backstreet speakeasys and his home town. He gloriously takes us to these places and I for one have enjoyed these visits. The free verse narrations are truly poetic theatre.
Writers of Voicesnet let us welcome from South Africa Conrad Van Der Berg as Baton Holder 79.
Take it away dear Conrad.
On behalf of The Musketeers
