In Memory of Richard

tall
     bearded
          introspective
               kind

he came unexpectedly
     tendered his book
          then sat waiting
               for our offering

stayed for poetry
     meshed with the band
like a soft, quiet rain 
     on a warm summer evening

vacated his spot
     with no fanfare
but in our anthology, a legacy

a song of love to Catherine
     You Are My World
a collection of Haiku

and in his book
a touch of peace for a moment
