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 9 : Under The Microscope

 


Lion 9:

Zaccharias.

Artist behind the lion:

Sylvie Margot (French painter).

Adoptive Writer:

Remiman at Under The Microscope.

Blog Description:

This is the very interesting site of a 61-year-old who lives in Upstate New York. Remiman's blog is full of poetry and photos and he writes up wonderful anecdotes about his life. There is humour but also deep reflections on what makes his world go round. Remiman says he has lived in or visited seven countries (Canada, Vietnam, Japan, Korea, France, England and Costa Rica) and France is his favourite! The writing on this blog is of a high standard.

Poem or piece of prose inspired by the lion:

Zaccharias is a scholarly lion_____
Seeking, peeking behind
The scenes, through the lens
Curious like his namesake, and his
Father before him.
For Zaccharias, information
Is like meat
For other lions.
His mane reflects the
Microscopic images he
Finds and records.
You can not hide
Under the microscope.

Yep Zaccharias comes across as a very intelligent lion. I'm looking forward to hearing more from him.
