Divorced father of six grown children.

Born in the late twelfth century on the island now named Svalbard, Mr. Kurt invented the word, pudding. In his youth he would travel the world in a dinghy looking for things beginning with the letter H. He found none. At the age of 30, during his blue period, he would repeatedly hold his breath for between three and four minutes, while sitting on icebergs. By forty-five, the now gangrenous poet to be, had grown to over fifteen feet tall and could telepathically communicate with lichen.

    Kelly Kurt needs no introduction on PH, He is doyen. He loves to take the humour out of anything. Apart from being astute researcher and erudite scholar, he has a great sense of humour and is a wonderful human being. He paid a huge price for what he achieved. May Almighty bless him with pink of health and blue mind. He is class apart on PH.

    Kelly Kurt - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

    Knowledgeable person he is as a scientist and poet,
    Educationally he is strong to guide many,
    Learning from all sources is his art of mind,
    Love he has kept for all fellow poets,
    Yonder he observes and writes Limericks giving fun.

  • Kumarmani Mahakul Kumarmani Mahakul (9/30/2018 8:58:00 PM)

    Key of success he has, poets notice, Kumarmani notices,
    Utterance he gives on poem of other is nice,
    Reverence he gives and reverence he receives,
    Trick he knows to represent. Poet Mahakul appreciates.

    Kelly Kurt
    Kite flier in the sky of knowledge,
    exploring what’s behind the known universe,
    looking at the old alien sleeping,
    like an overdrunk old man.
    Yachting in the dry ocean of truth,
    Kelly Kurt’s kite’s,
    ultra violet radiations,
    retouched the photograph of truth,
    that was dusty, still hanging in an ancient bedroom.

    Have seen you in a while Kelly, I hope all is well with you!

    what's become of Kelly, tell me true.
    i see no NEW poems; what's to do?
    i guess we'll hope, peace, he's found,
    and visit his site, though he's not around!

    RIP................... bri :)

    Thrillingly original, brimming with zeal. A jolly good fellow always looking on the bright side. Handling matters with class, you glow of goodness, dear poet.
    More grace.

    Your poems are like concepts of codes which are attractive and reminding.

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
