for Phil

 for Phil

First in memory
his joyous life..
life on earth
down here midst
plant animal and us..
Peace and wartime
his proud traditions
military and flag..
yet with discoveries
visions of more..

His mention recalled:
Mystery of Three
in One..
this faith nourished
his energy lifelong..
To many seeming
larger than life..
A family filled
his patterns of love..
 Those sporting fields
of friendly strife..

For my part:
A remarkable depth
his reaching insight
of rich difference
uniqueness of each..
Missions accomplished
before even begun..
With pause now
from remembered years
I have reached
my Point of 
joy with tears...
