What has been said of Mary’s poetry

Life's Roller Coaster by Mary M. Cushnie-Mansour

Memories by Mary M. Cushnie-MansourMary Mansour, through her family associations, bears the scars of a redundant war. And in an uneasy peace, she fights the war of poverty and loneliness with her words. All is poignant … Mary wears her words on her sleeve. She writes a kind of suburban folk-poetry and through its weave her faith is manifest – a personal philosophy honestly stated…Stanley J. White

Shattered by Mary M. Cushnie-MansourDevastations of Mankind by Mary M. Cushnie-Mansour

Mary Mansour, through her writing, opens the wounds of war and loneliness without applying the salve to ease the pain. Her poems use strong, well-crafted images that invoke a great deal of thought. She is astute in her observations, sometimes to the point of being provocative … Mary’s writings are incredibly insightful and provoking in the perspective of “life’s roller coaster.” Her observations are succinct and effective as she uses powerfully profound – sometimes even gut-wrenching images to get her points across…Neil Stoneman

Mary Mansour, looks at man’s inhumanity to man, woman and child. From ‘A Million Tears’ to ‘An Angel’s Promise’, she gives us a broad spectrum of her religious questions, making each poem a stained-glass window in her metaphysical church of wonderment …Mary’s ‘Roller Coaster’ displays a frankness and an appeal to her sense of religious questioning that can best be described as heartfelt. From such poems as “My Prayer” which opens with, I understand not this creature God has created, to her words in a psalm to a nature-based religion, All was good – so beautiful – God’s choir, unrehearsed. We begin to understand what it is she so keenly feels…Linda Geary
