Inspiring Writer I

Image:1 My quickie pencil sketch done this morning. In portraits, likeness is often frustrating. Can you recognize the writer? I may have to do another one!

Leader of the pack
Helmed  d’Verse with a great team
Remembered too well

A little announcement
Made it known no more blogging
Shocked for a moment

Was greatly relieved
When Waystation One remained
Next  d’Verse was born

Now they are vying
To be the first to comment
When you are the first

Music to the ears
But the Cat gleefully taunts
When he gets being first

Say,something’s brewing
Watch it Logan is coming
Chip of the old blog

Fine wine brings good cheer
Two zero twelve a good year
Enhanced all the fun

Submitted for Haiku Heights prompt 'Music' no.105

    1. Thanks becca! Tell you a secret. I had earlier drafted the posting with a different first line of the particular haiku. I later amended it to include the word 'music' to suit the prompt. It was clever of you to detect it!

  4. Wow... An amazing likeness. I knew who it was too without needing the words.
    What a fabulous way of tribute to a fabulous guy. He is truly making a difference in so many ways to so many lives. I'm sure he will be deeply touched and knowing him, embarrassed but so thrilled to have this made for him Hank. It's lovely.

      Thanks!

  11. Great sketch, Hank. I recognized it as Brian, too. Now don't you dare do one of me, unless I send you a photo of what I looked like 25 years ago.
