  2. Wonderful blog. Thanks for highlighting this place!

  3. I love her blog; Thanks for putting the spotlight on Kellie. She has a wonderful voice!

  4. What beautiful poetry! I especially got teared up when reading "A First Goodbye" a military brat, I had many such moments, and this was long before the days of internet, texting, and skyping. A goodbye was truly a goodbye, except for handwritten letters (which dwindled with time). Thank you for sharing this blog!

  5. Great pick, Mary. It is wonderful to keep meeting these wonderful poets through Poets United!

  6. I've enjoyed Kellie's writing for a long time, but haven't visited her recently. Thanks, Mary, for reminding me how lovely her work is.
