395, Farewell John

Last night was the last night any of us would enjoy the company of well known and loved Adelaide poet John Pfitzner.

This image is dedicated to him. The last rays of the last sunset he will ever know come streaming in through the stained glass skylight of Christ Church Wayville. The Adelaide Poet’s Corner group had readings there last night and John along with others came along to listen to poetry by guest readers. After the poetry I had a wonderful conversation with John about finding the muse and finding ones own unique voice be it with poetry or with pictures.

John passed quietly last night in his sleep. Rest in peace John.
