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 23 - TypingSpace


Lion 23:

Baz Lyon.

Artist behind the lion:

Vadim Kutsan (Ukrainian painter).

Adoptive Writer:

Derek at TypingSpace.

Blog Description:

This is one of those writing blogs that you really wish you had stumbled upon much earlier. Derek Motion is a 28-year-old who lives in Australia (Sydney I think) and is very clearly someone with great talent for the written word. He produces an eclectic mix of poems and musings on life. The poems are fresh and urgent and deserve a very wide audience. Derek became the proud father of a baby girl in May and he even posted her photo on his blog.

Poem or piece of prose inspired by the lion:

i will not look askance at you

not even deep-stare honestly the

world or some of it trickles

down my pelt & i like it i like

the ideas bouncing out of all

moments they increase my

immanent gaze & size
