Biography of Kurt Hearth

I went to school in upstate NY, graduated in 1955 and enlisted in the US Navy.
Retired US Navy Diver(22yrs) in 1977, became a volunteer firefighter, after completing 20 years as a DOD Police Officer in FL. I retired.
I started writing while in the navy and discovered that people enjoyed what I wrote. So I continued. From my participation in the high liability professions, I was afforded the opportunity to interact with individuals not only in crisis situations but grateful as well. This experience provided a great foundation for composing.

The ivory glow of the house lights dim
then come alive again.
A signal to the audience
their journey is about to begin.

The lights go down darkness prevails.
Subdued idle conversation ceases.
The anticipative silence broken
only by a muffled unintentional cough.
