Peekaboo haiku

Ronovan’s latest prompt gives us

ILL and REST

Two this week:

The petty jealousies of the wardrobe

‘Ill-suited’ they said

But the kilt loved the tweed skirt;

The rest could go hang.

– and-

Royal Toil

Rest a while, my love

For your sweat ill becomes you

A trainee princess.

About TanGental

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. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.
