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 25 - Life, Unscripted, On The Rock


Lion 25:


Artist behind the lion:

Frédéric Voisin (French visual artist and designer).

Adoptive Writer:

Jamaican Dawta at Life, Unscripted, On The Rock.

Blog description:

This is a wonderful blog produced from Jamaica. JD's site is stunning, with a large photo of her "Rock". The writing is intelligent and charming and there is always a giggle or some wise words. JD welcomes people to her blog with these words: "I’m a thirtysomething Jamaican dawta, who loves her country, and hopes one day soon to see it rise up to its full potential. Writing is one of my passions. Hopefully, by sharing some of my pieces, as well as my experiences and musings, persons will learn a little about what makes me tick. The simple things in life appeal the most to me. God, my family, and friends are top priority. When “in love”, I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve."

Poem or piece of prose inspired by the lion:

Once shorn and shamed/by soft hands of deception/left to perish amidst the useless strands/that was your glory/Veiled in dark shadows, your roar slumbers/Now, your roar arises/waking the dead/Softness lies crushed beneath its weight/your glory, returned.

About the lion's name

Azubuike means: "Your past is your strength"

My lion's name is Azubuike, which means "Your past is your strength". The poem inspired by my lovely, locked lion is on my site. Hope both are worthy of him.
