    Kelly's voice ranges from the profoundly deep to the hilariously silly

    I've been fortunate enough to know Kelly personally for several years now, but only recently started exploring his poetry. It does me good to know how many of you out there truly appreciate his fascinating perspectives and insights, as well as silliness and light heart.
    Never stop writing these Kelly. As long as you have plenty yet to say, you'll have plenty more waiting (eagerly) to listen.
    Your friend,

  • Melvina Germain Melvina Germain (10/19/2015 7:40:00 PM)

    I see talent all wrapped up into one very delightful and marvelous poet. You see he shines and lights up my day with his words which tend to smile with me, embrace me and surprise me. He stands high on the level of good poetry and Kelly's heart and soul flows on the page and not only in words of poetry but in his very honest and candid comments, oh sometimes leaving a heartprint or two. I'm in love again, indeed I'am. Now if you will be so kind as to excuse me, I must read more of Kelly Kurt.

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


Hidden beneath reflecting waves
They spend both night and day
With the sub aquatic mandate
Be predator or prey

In briny deep or shallow ponds
Variety is rife
Shape, size and color myriad
A festival of life
