What Is This All About ?

The writers gathered here have adopted one of the 48 lions that appeared in "The Lions Of Lyon" series on the writing blog Shameless Words. By adopting a lion, the writers have become a member of this new writing circle. The lions have been posted in the sidebars of the writers' individual blogs, accompanied by a poem or piece of prose. Of course, it is hoped that the strength, luck and prestige of these mighty beasts will rub off on their owners! (Keep scrolling down to see the full listings of all members and their lions).

Blog Description:

Rob Kistner is the man behind this exquisite looking site. This 60-year-old is a writer, poet, artist, singer, song lyricist, and contemporary furniture designer. Check out his website to see some great examples of all of these. Rob says he's "lucky to live an adventurous life". He says he went to three different colleges in the 1960s, furthering his education at the “university of the road” — cross country on motorcycles, then in traveling R&B and Rock ‘n Roll bands.

Poem or piece of prose inspired by the lion:

lion of myth and legend
dream bringer
cloud rider
traveler in time
protector of visions
muse to the uninspired

known as Artheo
to those you’ve touched
nameless to the rest

come now
restore the world’s wonder

open minds
unlock hearts
so all will know you
and be enlightened

I admire your education, Rob....both in educational institutions & at the University of the Road.
