Just as water naturally follows the course set by the sometimes wayward and often divergent banks of the river, Kurt Brindley’s poems in his debut poetry collection POEMS FROM THE RIVER follow the course set by the sometimes wayward and often divergent life he has led.

From solitary childhood reflections and isolated moments with nature, to the anxiety associated with the unrelenting passing of time and the fear of cancer’s ultimate consequences, to the pleasures and pain of family, friends, work, play, love, hate, life, death, Kurt’s poetry flows as does a river–sometimes with ease and quiet calm, as a river flowing through an isolated gulf’s serene and lazy shallows; at other times with spontaneity and unforgiving force, as a river flowing through a precipitous canyon’s tumultuous and unpredictable rapids; and at all times with undiminished resolve and pure blind faith that the end will justify the means, as a river forever flowing towards some unknown distant body of water that promises to be greater than itself.
