On 7/4/2020, John wrote, "Who Mourns For The Poet." https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/who_mourns_for_the_poet_1266152 Warrior is an adjective used for a hero or a knight I knew one, briefly, whose wings have taken flight Not just a fine poet was John, but also very kind Generous and caring, is how he would be defined Endearing was his 'love and light' message to all Departed now, but his memory I will always recall With words of tribute, I honor his humorous wit Always a positive attitude, he was a candle ~ lit Rest peacefully, ^WW^ ~ You're missed, my friend Reflecting Ripples is a poem John sadly penned In it he wrote about "shadows" and "silent sorrows" Oh, If from fate, I could be the one who borrows Respite from death, you'd have more tomorrows January 26, 2021 Capture the Essence Contest Sponsored by Margarita Lillico

WoW! Jenna, What a well written and heartfelt tribute to the WW. He was a great personand poet. Many at the soup have similar stories about him, because he had a way of making one feel like a dear friend or a family member. He sure did that for me. And I miss him very much. This a winner in my book. Best wishes in the contest. Have a great day:-) Alexis
