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.
