    thanks for the clear skies all too frequently i am just a smoke signal from the ground

    i can't remember writing a comment about a poet before. i've written lots of comments on poems, including a few on Mandee's poems. i would read and comment on more of them, but i would feel that i am ignoring others and my ice cream and pizza breaks.
    Mandee is one hell of an entertainer, though i often am in a fog about what she means (exactly) . her photo(s) , with one or two exceptions are also easy on my eyes. who is she really? only she knows for sure; or DOES she? ? bri ;)

    A fantastic poetry writer, and privileged to have met Mandolyn, through PH, keep it up, your technique is very clever, keep writing, crazy lady in the nicest respect off course, from the crazy Brit: -) , thanks for your helpful comments too.

  • Bronze Star - 2,059 Points Bull Hawking (11/7/2014 11:07:00 AM)

    Mandolin is one of the best poets ever to grace the PH pages but doesn't act like what she writes is scripture
    or Shakespeare even. The poems contain just the right amount of truth and randomness to qualify as real.

    She's back Plum, relax.

  • Veteran Poet - 1,544 Points Professor Plum (9/23/2014 5:16:00 PM)

    She didn't write any poems today. I wonder if she got run over by tractor or something. Lives in friggin' Idaho fer chrissakes. Who the heck lives in Idaho? Bears and farm animals? ;)

    A generous poet who gives so much of herself,
    Mandolyn writes with verve and warmth.

Best Poem of Mandolyn ...

Keepers Of Time To Go

you will never pour from my eyes
the way coffee volunteers to fall
from the spout of a diner's pot.
i will never turn my face to the sound of
your laugh, like the eyes of an owl
when the night has knocked.
our era is ending, unraveling the
threads of obsession. the addiction
i have fought over twenty five years
has knelt before me with a plea
to let it go. the sough of the earth
tugs at the leg of our love story and
moonlight lifts my head to show me
other stars. your breath is one last
windy day i have to push against.
