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 3 - Skin Diving

 

Lion 3:

Tirso.

Artist behind the lion:

Jocelyne Beaugrand-Tual (French painter).

Adoptive Writer:

exskindiver at Skin Diving.

Blog Description:

This blogger - an ex-teacher, wife and mother - is based in the US. Her blog is full of interesting insights into her life and her Filipino roots. The subject matter ranges from humorous anecdotes to deep, moving issues. There are always interesting images and personal photographs to accompany the posts. Poetry is featured, as well as reviews. The writing is energetic and original and always straight to the point. There are often references to other family members who also blog.

Poem or prose inspired by the lion:

variegated mask easy
to succumb to joy and pain
stable
in a changing world charging
through time
misunderstood.

Hi, would you please pass this note along to Tirso? I invite him to come visit me on my new blog, Literary Lion of Lyon. He would probably recognize me from the blog’s title, but tell him Roary sent the invitation. Thanks.
