How To Dance And Other Poetry #booklaunch

On my tour of the blogiverse to launch my poetry book, The Sincerest Form of Poetry, I’ve reached Ritu’s blog, But I Smile Anyway. She’s managed to make me explain how I came to write a poem in praise of my marriage and, by extension, my delightful wife. If there’s romance in your soul then pop over here and have a read…

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. 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 loved the chance to read the sonnet, a difficult form to practice. You were wise to keep to the central metaphor. Of course it can’t capture every bit of the relationship, but it gives a good view of the abiding love and connection.
