Sad news: Robert Bauer

From The Heron's Nest:

We regret to inform our readers that Associate Editor Robert Bauer passed away this morning at home in Big Wheeling, West Virginia. Bob was a frequent contributing poet before joining the editorial staff of The Heron's Nest in 2010 as Web Editor. The haiku community will also remember him as co-secretary of the Shiki Monthly Kukai.

A favorite poem by Robert Bauer:

chill wind -
the heart of an oak
leaves the chimney

The Heron's Nest Volume VIII, Number 1

Bob will be mourned and deeply missed by a large and loving family and his many friends, including his friends at The Heron's Nest.

John Stevenson

rush hour--
the blonde in the Porsche peels
an orange
