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 28 - Writing Passions


Lion 28:

Mr Mellow Yellow.

Artist behind the lion:

Shih Chun Lee (Taiwanese painter).

Adoptive Writer:

Susan at Writing Passions.

Blog Description:

Susan Abraham, a writer and journalist, produces this blog in Malaysia, although she does seem to be contemplating moving somewhere else at the moment. This blog has a very strong following of loyal readers and it's no wonder; Susan is prolific and energetic and her words are full of originality and music. She writes directly from the heart and the way she captures sentiments and slices of life is often breathtaking. She works on poems and plays and is very generous in her support of other writers.

Poem or piece of prose inspired by the lion:

Mr. Mellow Yellow from Lyons, playacted he was in Pompei. He discussed intimate matters only in spa baths while eating grapes handed by his hmmm...chambermaid! This smooth talker has guest starred on the telly's Hustle as the classy con-lion. He steals Christmas wines.

Thank you Seamus. :-)
My lion will be very embarassed by my choice of description but you are a sweetie-pie!

Oh by the way, my lion's name is Mr. Mellow-Yellow! He prefers public relations to eating someone up!
