A Tribute- Night Sky Of Feelings

butterfly-quote

Today is an interesting treat for me, as I was asked again to write up tribute to another member of our community. Usually I only get to dust off my gratuitous skills and give thanks once a year but it seems that once again we have a member who needs the spotlight shone upon them.

Night_Sky_Of_Feelings has really stepped up to the plate this last month with her poem-a-day attitude and is not one to be taken lightly. Though young, this author seems to be entering her stride; churning out many pieces of exceptional quality, depth, vision, and relatability. I, personally, look forward to watching her stretch her wings and become a force to be reckoned with in the writing world.

As always, I would also like to thank the other members of this site for their contributions as well; just as it takes many flavors to make great food, it takes many minds to make great food for thought. Keep up all the great work and never stop writing.

Sincerely,
One of Your Own

A Tribute- tlhopkinson

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.

Sincerely,
One of Your Own

A Tribute- BlackPhoenix23

What better way to sum up Poetry Month than a tribute? This tribute was messaged to us, it is dedicated to a member of Thoughts Inc., and the author has chosen to remain anonymous. Enjoy!

A Tribute- written by Anon

What is a tribute? Is it giving thanks? Is it showing off some of our best? Is it giving something to someone who’s earned it? Is it a statement meant to inspire pride? I believe that tribute is all these things as well as pride, privilege, and power.

It is April, the month of poets, so it only seems natural that we gather here to offer up praise to a poet among us who has touched many through their work and their spirit. This statement is for BlackPhoenix23 whose work and many other contributions have inspired this writer to try and be better. The emotion in their poems has touched my soul personally and occasionally brought tears to my eyes; tears of sadness and gladness, tears of pain and relief but so many things all wrapped into one. I personally just want to say thank you to BlackPhoenix23. To everyone else, your words matter more than you think so hold tight to your beliefs and your values, pour out your emotions and fears and know that you too are a pride to Thoughts Inc.
