The ones that do not understand this piece are themselves the ones that really have not got the true idea of the community on this site. This site is full of people that come together and on the whole spread a good message. There are those that think they are superior than others and choose to pull apart everyones piece of work, even though they really have no idea - I am not citing anyone on this page by the way. This site is full of people that love what they do and support those around them.
These tributes by Thunderstorm are misunderstood by some. Thunderstorm's work should be used as a check and balance by all on this site. In a way, his work brings us all back to reality and reminds us that the people behind the poems - whether they are good or bad, are actually people with feelings - feelings that can be hurt and uplifted.
I do not feel that people should rate work just to be nice, but rate it because they have something constructive to say to help the writer or because they just simply like it.
Good on you Thunderstorm for making people feel special.
Good on all the Writers at Writers network that truly understand the importance of ANY form of poetry - good or bad.
Just as an end note. If you see something in the Spotlight list, it is there for a reason - whether or not you agree.
Your heart speaks straight into your words, how wonderful that you lift this site's spirit's singlehandedly you make us understand we are unique and special and that you care enough to bring positivity here is astounding. Thank you.
I think a good poet is one that transfers emotions well onto page and a better poet makes others feel those emotions as though they are their own. You certainly manage this with expertise and this gets my SL vote for deffo.
I dont understand why I saw this in the SL. Why, because it is sweet? You are thoughtful yes, but it is unfair to others to give this 5 stars when there is so much on this site that really is 5 stars but left ignored.
I am seeing more and more tributes here, with no sense, random words etc. Yes I can understand how this would be flattering and (someone here pointed this out) your tributes make this site seem like a family. I dont care how much animosity i stir up with this review - someone had to point this out.
I cant give you constructive criticism because I wouldnt know where to start. SO ok we get it, you love your sisters. Leave them tributes in the chatroom or in messages, not here.
Storm my friend....You're such a kind and thoughtful soul....This will get the sisters smiling no doubt....Keep penning your golden tributes...You bring a wonderful fresh feel to this site...you make it feel like home for so many of us...Thanks Storm
