Shameless's Literary Lions: No 22. CARADOC


Oh look, I glitter. In a warm sun I glint
icicles and diamonds
my wealth dripping from me
then swept away in the wind.
Some say I am king.
But not yet.

One day...

One day I shall roar my words
and all the world will listen.

For more Literary Lions go here.

A well-chosen lion, Clare!

And you are exactly 48 words, counting the title...

Yes, that seems to be what it is to be a writer, the wealth of icicles and diamonds swept away into the world.

I hadn't realised about the limit until your comment made me look again! Such strange serendipity.

Hope you are going to join the pride, marly.
