“More true to the ear and the ‘third eye’ was Colin Kerr’s  ‘The Mud is Quiet’ (Chapman Publications). There is a whispering sharing of calm, a peace gained through compassion, pervading these delicately drawn poems.   They linger.” Hayden Murphy – Scottish Books, TES.

“Kerr’s poems are flickerings of light, brief perceptions of the ephemeral, a kind of poetry much more common in France than Britain.   Kerr is conscious of the frailties of language itself: his best poems are short and capture the moment when looking becomes seeing.” – Books in Scotland

“The poetry of Colin Kerr has a Zen-like clarity and concision.” – Stand Magazine
