Haiku to you, too


Ronovan’s weekly challenge:


When fame taints friendship

War replaces love and we mourn

Though day will break again.


Pro Patria Mori:

War’s natural duplicity

Or fame’s epitaph?

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published four books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars, Salisbury Square and Buster & Moo. In addition I have published two anthologies of short stories, Life, in a Grain of Sand and Life in a Flash. More will appear soon, including a memoir of my mother's last years. I will try and continue to blog regularly at geofflepard.com about whatever takes my fancy. I hope it does yours too. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame.

    The first is a personal war when friends fall out; the second is what happens when a nation lets it youth fall in trenches. Either makes fame bitter.
