    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.

    The poems that are written by Kelly Kurt are insightful poems. The poet uses finesse and beauty to make them be pleasant to the expert eye.

    There is an element on this site that if our senses of smell were cyber enabling that could only be defined as mundungus! A member here for several years, with nothing but perpetual loyal support, respect & friendship to offer to his fellow members, not to mention a style of poetic craftsmanship that added a quantum measure of polish & overall quality to this mediocre site with his every post and comment. His name is Kelly Kurt...He was a staple of contribution on this site...His philosophies on some of the most absurd ways that this site operates was simple and short. Ignore the ignorance...Enjoy everything else....At least that's what I got from the conversations I had with Kelly. And I will also add this: For Kelly to be so disgusted with this element that it would cause him to walk away from what he loved doing so much on a daily basis here, it must have been beyond abhorrent.
    I have been a member here since the sites inception in late 2005...I have had my share of run-in's and attempted bully tactics....I was a defensive participant in the infamous Forum Wars of 2006-2010 that eventually resulted in PH ownership/management thankfully deleting this arena due to the non-literary nature of the daily activity which could be best described as cruel, nefarious and at times, libel. Suffice to say I've seen it all including others like Kelly who were forced to leave this site. Anyone who knows me from years back, also knows that I hate clichés, especially in poetry. However, I must say that one comes to mind regarding this un-necessary loss of a good Poet & man. One that bares Truth & always comes to fruition.....What goes around, comes around...The PH I joined 11 years ago was a circle of artists that took pride in their work & took care of their own, We were people that were mindful, respectful & loyal. And at anytime should one of us be wrongfully shunned, abused, gun-decked, bullied or generally disrespected without cause...those responsible would ALWAYS be eventually outed, found and consequences would follow...I only hope for the sake of the whoever's who are responsible for Kelly's abrupt departure will be smart and reach out to Kelly Kurt, make amends, and convince him to return to this site. Because that's what artist's, members and friends do for fellow artists, members and friends. Games are for the Arcades...Harassment is for cowards. Thank You for the space to hopefully reach many on this issue....Frank J. Ryan, Jr./New York City, N.Y.

    PH claims Kelly's got 1268.
    Last time I thought 'twas 1269.
    I guess my eyes aren't very great.
    I KNOW his list is way longer than mine!

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

I Am An Echo

I am an echo
Overtaken by vibrations long ago created
Words and deeds resonated from the past
My present memory
A confluence in harmonic singularity
I am an echo
All that I am is all that I’ve been
My future self is an expectation of all echoes
Past, present and to be
