Times and tides


Ronovan’s haiku challenge, which I missed last week – no excuse beyond incompetence with the dates is this week



time is a trickster:

each day begins afresh

with yesterday’s silt

Full Circle

Time’s purest loves:

New Birth – time has yet to scar;

Old Death time’s scars end

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 three anthologies of short stories and a memoir of my mother. More will appear soon. 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.

    I love the analogy of starting a new day on the fertile silt of the previous day.
