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).

Lion 17 - Virtual Crossroads


Lion 17:


Artist behind the lion:

Françoise Granger (French sculptor and painter).

Adoptive Writer:

Pure Sunshine at Virtual Crossroads.

Blog Description:

This is a delightful blog from India. The author is a 23-year-old journalist who always has a lot of variety and colour in her posts. There are wonderful anecdotes and photos alike. Pure Sunshine welcomes people to her blog by saying: "Love to debate, analyse get into the depth of things — be it literature, people or matters of "global concern". Love studying people, their body language, analysing personalities. Should have become a criminal psycologist! What the heck!"

Poem or piece of prose inspired by the lion:

Shamelessly spirited

Leon! Leon! Shining bright!
Though not in forests, not at night,
The striped beast, in yellow and red
Speaks not of fear or of dread.
Shameless, he gives one hope to carry on,
To take nimble steps and look ahead,
For, what's gone is gone!

Poised to face battles glorious,
And to come on top always victorious.
Gives you strength and positive vibes
So your shameless spirit in you is energized.
And if you are a rebellion or a struggler
With Leon, just believe in you.
For, the magic lies inwards!

About the lion's name:

Pure Sunshine says: "It is simply the Irish/Gaelic and German translation of Lion. I like the name because it's short and sweet and sounds good."
