I love the forcefulness of the words. All simply stated but with optimism, hope for the future and the proactive nature of we the people.
These pieces remind me of Whitman and Sandburg and Emerson whom I loved to read as a teenager..
Perhaps your words will entice our young people of today to go out and change the world and not complain about what has passed, not complain about what our government is not doing for us. Perhaps your words will entice we the people to take the lead and be responsible for our own world and our future in it..
Thank you Keith for your writing and wisdom. Thank you for sharing the beautiful photographs of your twin grandbabies. This is a wonderful and inspiring piece of work..

The foundation of Keith’s poems is “courage.” Make that COURAGE, because Keith isn’t worried about the usual work shopped-to-death poem one sees over and over again in magazines and on the internet. He wants his reader to see what he sees the way he sees it and that takes courage. He’s risky. His line breaks come when he breathes. His verse is sometimes free, sometimes sculpted, sometimes danceable. His images walk straight into your mind and find their way to your heart with no detours, no missed turns.
I go to Keith’s work when I want to feel real. When I want to know a “regulatory pattern/ without hesitation/or remorse/on the earth’s part.”
A wonderful read! Thank you, Keith. Write on!

Keith Alan Hamilton, crossed my path approximately 3 years ago. I am forever grateful for his presence in my life. He is one of the most sincere people that I know. He is unique, or as my Papa used to say – Uni-Q. He is a witty, sarcastic, loving, a fantabulous writer, supporter of the Arts and a highly intelligent human being. Keith is as honest . . . as the aeons are long. If you do not expect to hear his opinion, don’t ask. This sincere quality is a rarity in ‘humanity’, that I find refreshing, and appreciate so much. Keith, wears no mask !I had the good fortune to meet him in person at a Poetry ‘Gig’ in Boston.
Like a lot of us, he is a mixed bag of goodness and righteous anger. People talk about healing the world, and do nothing. This is not so with Keith. Keith is a DO-er. I have the utmost respect for the Man, Artist, Writer, Photographer and finally and certainly not least, my Eternal Friend. Within the pages of Nature ~ IQ “Let’s Survive, Not Die”, you will see exactly what I mean. Buy one for yourself, and another as a gift. In doing so, you will be servicing humanity as well.

First of all, Keith is an exceptional Human Being. For myself, this is where it all begins. He is a keen observer of the myriad of nuances that make up life. Being an observer he is quite adept at capturing aspects of the grand Human Involvement which is not always so comfortable to face for most of us. However, in doing so, confronting the sometime uncomfortable truths we are always the better for it. I applaud Keith, for courage to speak out is not one of his weaknesses.
Finally, when all the dust clears and we regain our vision as a collective, you will find Keith right there beside you, the rarity, is that he is an advocate for the evolution of goodness he purports throughout his work in Photography and Poetry and all that he chooses to involve himself with.
