Comments about Kelly Kurt

    Kelly Kurt is a poet with a difference. He describes himself as a recluse, writer, philosopher, scientist and the divorced father of six grown children.
    May I, with your permission, dear Kelly, add an adjective to your description.
    A lovable recluse,
    A knowledgeable writer,
    An independent philosopher,
    A remarkable scientist and
    An adorable father of six grown children.
    For the last one year, in Poem Hunter, I know Kelly, as a fine human being. Being the top and honoured poet of Poem Hunter, he still has the humility and goodness to read the poems of almost unknown and obscure poets like me. His comments are intelligent and to the point.
    I would like to express my thanks to you, on this page, Kelly, for your support.
    May you prosper and reign as the popular and honoured poet of Poem Hunter!

    ***Way to go, Kelly. #1 in the world and well into the top 500 poets of all time. It may be little consolation, given all the trolls that give you low votes and dislikes here, but your work will become timeless classics. You are a true genius! ! ***

Best Poem of Kelly Kurt

I Can Promise Only This

You can ask anything of me and I will attempt
You can tell me to smile, when grief is my shadow
You can stick me with pins and require my stillness
Take all my possessions and demand more
You can mandate the improbable and I will comply
But I can promise only this
To do my best

Read the full of I Can Promise Only This


Fear is the thorn that protects the rose
The moat keeping knights from the castle
The darkness at noon
Failure before commencement
Fear is that illusion
That worry
That dread without substance
A hollow, echoing gremlin
The devils delight
