The Lion that Roars



Shameless is running this project and I think I have managed to adopt lion number thirteen, who is posing beautifully here.

Vermilion

a lacquered lion stalked
a ridged roof of terracotta tiles
till lightening struck and he leapt down
to pad past pagodas, tip-toe through the tea
house and out through the moongate - off to seek a soulmate
in far away lands still red in tooth and claw

I have adopted a lion too - or am in the process of anyway ... You have certainly done justice to your one. Congratulations!
Have also enjoyed 'catching up.' Loved the music clips.

I sent my Mum here to read some of your wise words and she liked your lion too! ... And your blog in general.

Thanks all. I'll catch up with you all this weekend. I've been really busy with committees and photographic projects this week.
