When asked to again write a tribute for Poetry Month there was only one person in my head that qualified for this honor. They are a shining example of all Thoughts Inc. has to offer us as well as a shining example of a good human being. This being said I would like to offer my thanks to tlhopkinson. Writer, moderator and poet extraordinaire.

@tlhopkinson was the only person to qualify because of the amount of poetry she has gifted us with in this month celebrating the written word. Almost every day this entire month she submitted a new original work. As if this wasn't enough, the quality of each piece has been on the superior level and thought provoking. I can say that after reading each piece I walked away with a new perspective or a few new ideas to ponder. This is the skill of a great poet, to get their ideas across while still leaving room for the reader to have their own experience. I feel that tlhopkinson has mastered this skill fully.

Other readers and writers among us don’t think that I’ve not noticed you either. We’ve had so many great pieces of work submitted in the last year and just because I didn’t choose them or you doesn’t mean that you aren’t great in your own right. It takes all kinds of authors to make us great. You show us the world through your eyes and allow us to live in it for a little while, that alone makes you also worthy of mention here. Keep at it and refine your craft and maybe next time it will be you this honor goes to.

I'm honored :) . I'm glad all my posts weren't too much... I started feeling like I was taking up too much space on the forum ;-) . This site has been great inspiration and encouragement for me and has certainly helped keep me writing and sharing!

I think the girl needs a badge. Maybe a cartoon of a running poet with her tongue hanging out.


I am a man with one distinguishing manner. I view life as a nonstop roll by circus. Whatever my senses signal to my brain, it is received as humor.

Good Job @ tlhopkinson.

Why reach for the stars when you can reach for a book and have the stars, the sun and the moon.
