This is a poem I wrote as a grand tribute to a budding grandpoet Ivyevelyn wishing her everlasting good health.

Spread out your tender wings

My dearest friend Ivyevelyn,
I see a poet in you
taking wings
like a colorful butterfly
from a prolonged brooding
of a pupa's cocoon.

Come on,
my lovely Evelyn butterfly,
spread out your tender wings
and fly high and low
wafting slowly and steadily
like the slow-swaying blooming flowers
of the wonderous garden
colorfully aglow
with the shine of the sun.

Shall I need to remind you
that every poem
is an immortal thought of a poet.
Every poet has something
unusual to express
in their own way,
and every poet is a tramp
wandering over the hills,
through valleys and dales
churning out the thoughts of yore.


I know your poetic zeal
knows that every thought
has its roots in the hearts
of humans yearning to fuse
with the other hearts
finding a common feeling
that make them beat
in the same rhythm.

I know you know that every rhythm
of the compasssionate heart
is a vibration emerging from an emotion
evolving from infancy to the time of departure.

My heart beats
for your heart's tempo
tuning you to unburden the anguish
of memories and unravel
the mysteries of livin' to the eternity.

A breeze enters my window
bringing a cool soothing message
that everything's fine
with my friend recovering
from the grief of the pestering pain.

Get healed soon,
you eve' livin' 'evelyn!,
find tranquility in the soothing
comforts of heart-touching Tranquil pens
wishing you to be hale and healthy.

Where do you go from here?

You asked us thus:
"where do I go from here?"

But know well
that you're in our hearts
and you're going to be alright soon.
Be in our hearts and be healed.

Share your thoughts
among us and think positive,
nothing is impossible
with positive thinking, you know it well.
Do I have to remind you now!

You said, "I have opened
up my distress to you all
and found peace and the courage
to move forward,
carrying with me your strength
alongside the strength I have left."

And that's what we all wish
and we want you to share
your lovely thoughts
from the rich experiences of life as it is.

Come on lovely Ivyvelyn, come out of the shackles
and be free in your muse.
I wish you a great life
and I wish you grand stay in my heart.

I've had half a mind to write a tribute to Ivyevelyn myself after discovering the hurting that she feels about her medical condition and the effort she makes to share herself to Wikinut, notwithstanding. I feel for her, this outstanding lady who touches our lives. I sincerely hope she'll overcome everything with her tenacity. Great tribute, my friend!

Sorry Buzz, I grabbed this opportunity of conveying my best wishes to our loving friend Ivyevelyn.

I think you can still post a tribute of yours for Ivyevelyn.

Hope to see your poem soon.

Because of my computer problems, I have yet to really get to know Ivyevelyn. What I have found briefly is that, she has a very warm and kind heart. My heart and prayers go out to her. Also to you my friend, how kind of you. You never cease to amaze me with your generosity. Very nice read. Congrats on the star page, it is well deserved. Thank you for sharing.:)

Hello friend Humza,

Yes I wish her great health.
She's going to be alright soon with all best wishes of the Wikinut friends.

When we all bless her, she will recover very quickly.

There's magic in wishing 'get well soon' to someone who need the wishes to recover fast more than any medicine to imbibe into the physical body.

Oh, what a lovely surprise! I have just found this page. Thank you so much, Rathnashikamani., and everyone who added their comment. You are all so valuable to me. I don't know where Wikinut came from but you were all here, waiting for me, and I certainly needed your support and goodness of heart. Wikinut came to me as a gift when God knew I had a burden more than I could carry alone. I love you all.
Ivyevelyn.

I did not have a message to say that Rathnashikamai had written this page. This is what I read in the Wikinut support section and quote::
"You can see that you're following an author, as the follow link will be replaced by a Stop following option, which is what you click to break the connection". In fact, I had a message that Rathnashikamani had stopped following me, which of course shattered my spirit, so I went to the "more information" page and found this wonderful tribute. .
Help! I have the green sign against all my followers, but do not receive a message when they write a new page.
Ivyevelyn.

Rathnashikamani:
Please advise me. The authors' notes read:
"You can see that you're following an author, as the follow link will be replaced by a Stop following option, which is what you click to break the connection."
All the authors I follow have the green link on. Does this mean that I am or am not following them?What is wrong with me? Why do I find this confusing?
Thanks again for your wonderful tribute. I appreciate you so much.
Ivyevelyn.

In fact, I wanted to answer to your query but somehow I missed to do it.

You must click on that green link to turn it into red , which means you're following that author.

Also, you must edit your profile by clicking on the 'Edit your profile' link <https://www.wikinut.com/editprofile/> and putting a tick mark in the option of "Alert me when an author I follow publishes a new page" Alert me when an author I follow publishes a new page" to receive messages every time the authors publish new pages.

Hope this helps you to follow the authors now.

Dear Rathnashikamani:
I found this page today and I felt a change come over me. I admit I was feeling tired and maybe a little burdened, but you opened up my heart and I look around me and I feel renewed. I am sure you were sent to me at this time to give me strength and love, so that I do not feel alone. God Bless you and all my Wikinut friends,, Ivyevelyn.

My dear Ivyevelyn,
All Wikinut friends are wishing you good health and you're recovering, and I want you to progress with your will power which is the ultimate strength.

We humans are made of these frail physical bodies with the infinitely powerful soul within, but we often forget our 'self' and look outward for strength and solace.

When you look inwards, you'll realize that there is the whole creation within your soul that is omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent.

Blessings to you. You're never sick.
