    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.

  • Freshman - 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 - 1,475 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? ;)

    Duck Dynasty is cool and all
    But he ain't cool like Mandolyn
    She's a poet.

  • Silver Star - 3,112 Points Diane Hine (8/9/2014 10:45:00 PM)

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

Best Poem of Mandolyn ...

it was the way you touched my skin...

i used to be cold
before summer dropped you off
and left you
on the edge of my bed-

your eyes were afraid of mine
like i was made of glass;
you tried to handle me with care
until i told you
i was dead

because a thousand tears
could not prove
that i've been broken
and you just wanted me
for the night

you were right-

i'd flip you
across the moon
if i could
then watch you fall

while my heart
remains a canyon
you fly over
when she's gone

Read the full of it was the way you touched my skin...
[Hata Bildir]
