Angel without Wings Award by Nameda


Suggested by Andorada & TheGalleryOfEve

”Malintra-Shadowmoon is one of the sweetest people you can encounter on the whole site. She helps a lot of people without taking credit for her contribution, but her presence is invaluable for all her peers. She’s beloved by many, many people. She’s someone whose sweetness and kindness can brighten anyone’s day in a heartbeat. She does a LOT of community work in the form of features of all kinds and group work, and she always brings her inner warmth towards those who need it most. Our beloved Malintra-Shadowmoon makes this place a much better place with her lovely existence, and we’re all SO very proud to call her one of our Angels Without Wings today. Congratulations, dear friend!”

Celebration of Colorful Nature's Renewal by Malintra-Shadowmoon

ConfidenceDo you feel neither longing nor happiness and
Have buried all your hope?
Even if only solitude and sorrow remain,
You still shall have confidence.
There are still miracles and light in this world,
Dreams are fulfilled.
Do not doubt and despair now,
Even if the painful sadness stays.
There comes the day that brings joy again.
Smile sparkles in your eyes.
Timidly yet, in your heart strikes up,
The song from then, it returns!
The way to the future you walk with your heart -
No matter how difficult it is.
The mental agony passes after a long time -
Then memory is merely history.
Fog of worries and sorrow surrounded your world,
Often you have deplored your lost happiness.
The path to the future is illuminated brilliantly,
When trust shines warming into your heart.
Never give up, show the courage to live -
No, never give up!
You will be glad again and everything will be fine!
DuskClad in midnight-blue,
Nightly clouds are sailing past,
Covering the sky.

Angel without Wings Award by Nameda

”Monica has a very strong presence in the DeviantArt community. She spreads love wherever she goes. Her countless features show how much dedication she has and how much love she puts in each one of them. If you have the pleasure to come across with ther, you’ll see how sweet she is with everybody and how big her desire to help others is. She even created a stock account to provide amazing resources for other artists to inspire them and to express their creativity with the help of her images. Lots of good vibes emanate from Monica’s account, and we’re all very proud today to announce her as one of the recipients of the Angels Without Wings accolade. Congratulations, dear Monica!”
”When I think of community spirit, of somebody being nice and supportive against all odds, I think of ikazon. He is such an inspiration! I do not have enough good words to describe him. Whatever position he had, he was the sweetest of guys, very helpful, gentle and respectful. Trevor is a very sweet friend, always ready to do something for whoever needs help. One of the sweetest people you can encounter indeed. BELOVED with capital letters, and a pure joy to be around. We’re all very happy to call you one of our Angels Without Wings today! Congratulations, ikazon!”

Chase the Chance by ikazon

It's all over the newsIt's all over the news, bad news.
It comes and goes in heavy waves, and
your aunt has cancer.
It seems lately that all you do is lose
yourself, always seeing graves because
it's all over the news. Bad news:
this year is still ongoing. It's true
it feels unstoppable, and by the way
your aunt has cancer—
a snake-noose tightening grooves
into her neck and throat, giving it
its all. Over the news, bad news,
you have coffee and chatter moodily—
because what else can you do when told
your aunt has cancer—
Stare silent at the menus, choose
the easiest meal to stomach, because
it's all over. The news, bad news:
your aunt has cancer.
Cain's ConceptionEve has been in pain
for months, it seems, swelling
the way an ocean wave does
until it crashes, and the things
she wants to eat! I do not want
to be made into a murderer,
but she loves bluebirds
with honeycomb, and sometimes
tuber plants. Pecks and pricks
aside, it's worth it when she finds
the taste she wants. Sometimes
she swears her stomach is
kicking, and I tease her. "If
it's kicking, then no wonder it
gets bigger!"
Some mornings she wanders
to plants while I am resting
and some strange bird I haven't
named yet begins to lurch. It is
possibly the worst noise I have heard
yet, and I relate it to the feeling
a skunk's stench leaves on my stomach
and I wonder when hers will
stop kicking or growing, or else
what will happen when it stops
kicking or growing, and if she--
I -- if we will be the same.
Some days I believe her,
when I can feel her stomach
kicking in my hands. I wonder if mine
will become an ocean wave too.
