Val d'Aosta Vignette (Short Story) - 1/27/2006 11:11:39 AM
“In Cogne, happiness is measured not in gold, amica, but in that which warms the heart and delights the senses. Per favore… enjoy, remember cold nights, fine food, and cioccolati hand-made for you by eternal friends.”
Yup that just about sums up happiness..well done Kevin you really have the perfect surname all of your work stems from you wondrous heart/Hart...bravo!
Val d'Aosta Vignette (Short Story) - 1/27/2006 4:17:06 AM
I'm sorry, but I don't "get" it. Or maybe I do. Are you implying that the chololate is not sold but given? Strange, if that is the case. Or maybe I am just not sensitive enough to understand.
Val d'Aosta Vignette (Short Story) - 1/27/2006 2:17:31 AM
For a first this is very well done Kevin!!
Looking forward in reading more!!

What a beautiful, sad write.
At the Crown and Anchor (Poetry) - 3/7/2008 12:14:47 PM
Different but soul satisfying. Brinks to mind my lost cocker spaniel Joy and others who have gone before me. Will read your things as they appeal to me and help with my depression.
Ship That Never Came In (Poetry) - 3/7/2008 12:13:29 PM
Mine sank with loss of hubbie Tom on Aug 17 07 after 17 years. It is so lonely without him still and I do my devotionals daily by reading poems such as you write and inspirational ones to help me through grieving. Thank God for good authors like you are.
Manifold Black (Poetry) - 11/28/2007 12:28:33 PM

Cara Mia, Please (Poetry) - 7/19/2007 10:11:37 AM
The "Cara mia made me think many years back...I was playing the leading roll in a play.....ver serious play it was...called "The Ring"...and Each time my knight said the words "CARA MIA MY LOVE"...I use to burst out in laughter.....not sure if it was the pathetic look on his face or the way he said the words...but I just could not handle it well....lol!!
At the end we had to cover it up with a few extra lines to set my mind straight!!

if anyone doubts it is real, they should have a good dose of it, they would become believers
Punk Poetry (Poetry) - 6/14/2006 6:59:54 PM
oh, yes. this is right. you took me back a ways, to days spent on skateboards, boombox in hand with a bad brains tape glued in the tape deck. the roir album was the soundtrack to my youth in them days, with every sunday afternoon spent at cbgb's hardcore matinees. now i'm older,though not much wiser, and the cold thought hits me that our gods are dying off. joey and johnny, wendy o., and most of all, the great joe strummer. sometimes i wonder if those years of my youth were wasted; then i read something like this, and i realize i was part of something bigger than myself, and i wasted nothing.
thank you for this poem.

Glass Paragraphs (Poetry) - 5/23/2006 9:31:57 PM
Glass Paragraphs pours the red, such a clarifying poem! Would not at all have the same taste if it were white wine...Glass Paragraphs is such a palatable poem with a pleasing bite! Decipher's very well, Kevin! In vino veritas...in wine there is truth!
Glass Paragraphs (Poetry) - 5/20/2006 6:22:13 PM

Well written Kevin!!
Rocking Horse Boats (Poetry) - 5/4/2006 7:38:05 PM
I enjoyed the visuals in this poem. It reminded me of my brother who was a seaman. Beautifully written!
Fast Food Poetry (Poetry) - 4/11/2006 1:48:46 PM
This is very unique, which alone is great. The idea of fast food poetry reminds me of the beret-wearing poets in cafes who take themselves far too seriously- great title and poem.
Fast Food Poetry (Poetry) - 4/10/2006 7:54:56 AM

Drinking Alone (Poetry) - 3/30/2006 5:32:36 PM
During World War ll drinking was social now it is hard drugs which is much more damanging to the mind. This is the runination of our country and it goes on in other countries as well.
Fallujah Afternoon (Poetry) - 3/30/2006 5:27:29 PM
Yeap - nothing is gained but bitterness and hurt by all concerned -
It seems prosperity and world changes are made after a war - perhaps that is the real reason behind declaring war against another - who knows
Berlin (Poetry) - 3/30/2006 5:21:01 PM
All killing is wrong - although they justify WAR That is unfortunate
Berlin (Poetry) - 3/11/2006 11:48:11 AM
A sad reality these days my friend!!
Culloden (Poetry) - 3/11/2006 10:00:32 AM
A great offering Kevin!!
Berlin (Poetry) - 3/10/2006 7:51:38 PM
Greed fodders war. Children leave as warriors faithfully honoring belief and return scarred and older than their ability to deal can cope. Scars....no one knows the real damage but them. This is a sad truth.
Thanks you .

Hell of a trip you took me on here, Kevin S. Hart. Didn't quite know whether to laugh or cry or cuss, finally just settled back for the ride. Reminds me of one I wrote . . . Prodigal Father.

You are very emotional-charged and is evident in this poem. This poem is heartfelt and well-expressed of your love and pain. I think this is well-done.
Lucky Star Sandie May Angel :o)
Lori (Poetry) - 1/24/2006 9:37:29 PM
elt this and i would not change something that comes from the heart. There is nothing like expressions from the heart and impressions go no where. This is marvelous to me so with that said God bless.
Carefree Castles (Poetry) - 1/22/2006 8:59:59 PM
You've penned some great lines here; I especially like the coffee similie and the Little Boy Blue/Little Red Riding Hood analogy. I found myself nodding the whole way through... Whew, I connect. Good work, Kevin.

Ship That Never Came In (Revised) (Poetry) - 1/21/2006 4:56:38 PM
a well crafted allegory of a man who is alway being tossed about by life's turmoil ...
a battered sheet in the wind
Eyesore, heartache, drunken liar…
he believes is his destination
Ordinary Man (Poetry) - 1/20/2006 12:38:33 PM
Just have to love it!!
Ship That Never Came In (Revised) (Poetry) - 1/14/2006 12:12:37 PM
Great offering yet again!!
Ship That Never Came In (Revised) (Poetry) - 1/14/2006 10:52:46 AM
Funny how I clicked on this. I didn't think you were actually going to repost! (smile!) But I can't take credit for anything my dear Brother. It's the tried and true networking of being parts of various poetry groups, seminars, and readings both past and present that showed me how to pick a poem apart, and see it as a moving picture show. All I shared was an interpretation of what I saw in this, and YOU dear friend are the one who had the foresight to re-create something I only appreciated.
Thanks just the same for the kudos, I appreciate you and all the others here in this equal-opportunity Authors Den. (Don't you wish everybody was as accepting as we all seem to be my friend?)
Ship That Never Came In (Revised) (Poetry) - 1/14/2006 10:40:22 AM
Too damn close for comfort on this end.
Ship That Never Came In (Revised) (Poetry) - 1/14/2006 10:21:03 AM
Awesome write..Not one extra word used..well done!!
Ship That Never Came In (Revised) (Poetry) - 1/14/2006 9:31:14 AM
Remnants of the past and illegitimate erasure. I like this one, Kevin. When you have spare, read my Lighthouse and Starve the Ravens and 19th Century Muse posted in my den. They have the ship theme. I love your line
"Mortgaged his future
for a ship in a bottle."
Nice poem. Almost sounds like a memoir.
Ship That Never Came In (Poetry) - 1/13/2006 10:08:44 AM
I see many poems hiding in this vessel. Tells many stories. Almost series-like. blessin's Bro. Kevin,

Oh mine just sank...on this Friday 13,....hubby lost his job...grrrrr!!
Thanks for this very fine offering
Ship That Never Came In (Poetry) - 1/13/2006 3:32:42 AM
Man, we seem to be on the same page today, I posted a poem eerily similar. Good.
Ship That Never Came In (Poetry) - 1/12/2006 3:59:45 PM
Sad, isn't it how those in the bottle can't seem to see beyond the fog. Even a two by four on the back of the head doesn't help.
Carefree Castles (Poetry) - 1/11/2006 9:34:33 AM
Such is life....keep on keeping on!!
Carefree Castles (Poetry) - 1/11/2006 7:13:46 AM
Yes, I'd say this is a wake up call, alright. No need crying over spilt milk. Mop it up and poor yourself another glass. I know its easier said than done - but trying makes one feel a whole lot better. Great remainder!
God bless, Kevin!
Carefree Castles (Poetry) - 1/11/2006 3:48:51 AM
been there done that..now you need to say EHOUGH..and start living..YOU gotta do it ..no one can do it FOR you..OK
Great piece..a wake-up call to many in the same scenario..
Carefree Castles (Poetry) - 1/10/2006 4:07:16 PM
You have crafted some great lines. I especially like the image of the bitter coffee chasing away a wasted night.
Karina At Eighteen (Poetry) - 1/10/2006 3:48:27 PM
You make the reader sift hard for the meaning, whether it is intentional or just lack for descriptive sapphic words. The giveaway that this is a sapphic poem is first this line, "Artificial progression into a woman’s world" and this line "Attractive opposites, polarity reversed." In any case, I love this poem, because it has a dynamic sapphic thrust to it, why I suppose you repeated a few lines. Nice meeting Karina At Eighteen, Kevin.
Carefree Castles (Poetry) - 1/10/2006 3:40:20 PM
And the beat goes on. Sometimes it doesn't seem worth it, but when you think of not waking up in the morning, the troubles somehow don't seem all that bad. Snap out of it, if you can.

The aura in which you deliver this one is excellent.
Ordinary Man (Poetry) - 12/31/2005 4:11:50 PM
"...Rumrunner fever in an old Hill Country bar,
Nachos and beer will get you pretty far
At the place by the river, everyone’s a star..."
Aha! I remember that place by the river in the Hill Country! Down the road a piece from where I used to live. Thanks for the memories.

I have to agree very lyrical and well written I enjoyed the read.
Mistaken Prophets (Poetry) - 12/20/2005 9:39:12 AM
Well written Kevin....I think I know the meaning of this!!
Never to trust another smiling at you...it could be the devil himself!!
Mistaken Prophets (Poetry) - 12/19/2005 1:33:14 PM
Mistaken prophets exclaim zealotry
Excuses conduct not prohibited

Listen close; it is time to realize that
Well, you completely lost me with this poem and especially the ending. I liked the way you said it, but damned if I know what you said.

"I’ll leave before my manners are clouded by judgment"
I can relate to the feeling you penned here!!
Karina At Eighteen (Poetry) - 12/17/2005 3:45:40 AM
Have not the slightest idea what "form" this poem is, if, indeed it IS a classic form. Matters not to me anyway, it is the poem that matters and this poem matters. The repeating of certain lines within the structure of it is fasinating and eerily spellbinding. Oh, I almost forgot. I liked it.
Karina At Eighteen (Poetry) - 12/16/2005 6:14:29 PM
She was obviously breathtaking and made an everlasting impression which has been immortalized in your verses. Thank you for sharing this gift, Kevin. Love and peace.

Enjoyed this wonderful and most lyrical piece...!!
Please, señorita (Poetry) - 12/15/2005 4:07:31 PM
VERY intense and very bohemian in nature, at least to me, even could be called modern-day beat. Anyway, it impressed me because I have been that guy in the phone booth. Wonder where all the phone booths have gone to? Great study in abject failure and frustration as he tries what may be his very last chance to connect with anything resembling normalacy.

Cinnamon Moon (Sonnet XIV) (Poetry) - 12/10/2005 1:56:02 PM
Quite a hodgepodge of memories stand out within this poem, sonnet, if you will. You are very good at making words dance to your quill. Nice.
Sweet Olive (Poetry) - 12/10/2005 11:29:52 AM
I weep at the untimely death (murder) of trees, Kevin. Timely words in your verses. Thank you. Love and peace.
Rock And Roll Poet (Poetry) - 12/1/2005 10:50:48 AM
I wanna be a household name!!! This was such a funny, upbeat poem with a powerful underlying message. You are indeed
Sweet Olive (Poetry) - 12/1/2005 10:48:10 AM
What beautiful words and imagery are displayed here. You are definitely a master poet.
Sweet Olive (Poetry) - 11/28/2005 4:45:38 PM
outstanding and moving
Sweet Olive (Poetry) - 11/23/2005 11:01:43 AM
Hpoefully I am not mistaken...but this is a great ode to a very old tired tree....right!!
They have chopped down some very old trees alongside the main road not very far from here trying to avoid more road accidents...and the day they did it I was so very sad knowing that a legend was no more part of this beautiful part of the world!! Those trees musta been standing there at least 200 years or more!!
Par excellence Kevin!!
Sweet Olive (Poetry) - 11/23/2005 10:23:55 AM
Beautifully written. Rhythmic and vivid and full of heart. This is poetry at its best.
Doggerel Days (Poetry) - 11/19/2005 6:22:40 AM
Yes! Something about the way you construct this poem that makes me think of the "Beat" poets of days past. I alway thought the beats were full of it, but I did like a lot of their poetical madness. I like this one to, and it is NOT madness, Tinka. '62 Mets. Oh boy. I was living in Flushing in those days, five minutes foor Shea Stadium.
Doggerel Days (Poetry) - 11/18/2005 12:32:19 AM
Obvious madness well expressed.....lol!!
Well done Kevin...sorry had to smile reading that line!!

Am in total agreement with you. - And, I hope I have
deciphered it enough to make that comment. Seriously,
it's a gem of a mental challenge.
And, yes, poetry may be trusted to serious matters.

Fats Domino (missing) was my first rock idol when I was seven or eight - oops, showing my age now - so even an ocean away I feel personally touched.
Great Poem, New Orleans is a city of music and fun, it will rise again.

lol- that last line made me laugh- you are right, the bees are busy for many reasons, and their sting can sometimes heal people, go figure!
Bees (Poetry) - 8/16/2005 2:45:40 AM
This poem buzzes! A fantastic descriptive write with a lovely little sting in the tail. Great work!
Bees (Poetry) - 8/15/2005 10:42:34 PM
Oh the bees they DO be buzzin' in places where we gather. . . like roses and thorns, even metaphorically, bees must BE for us to enjoy the honey in our lives.
All things have purpose, your poem says this very distinctly.

Beef Stew (Poetry) - 7/26/2005 3:46:53 PM
Intriguing write. We've got to wonder about those busy friends and the going overboard, faded pictures and loneliness and what's really needed to fill us up. Now I'm hungry. :-)

Jack Kerouac and Me (Poetry) - 5/26/2005 5:33:34 AM
Kevin, how succinctly you've captured the torment, the mania, the grief, the fear, the heartrending beauty of being a literary artist. No doubt Kerouac would have enjoyed you as a travel companion; indeed, you are one.

intriguing imagery ...

i loved this...i quit drinking a few years ago (a millenium) but i still miss that feeling that came with just the perfect buzz
Merlot (Poetry) - 3/22/2005 8:30:20 AM
Now thats the spirit! I come from a winery family, so this rests easy on the palatte. Great stuff, Kevin...
Road (Poetry) - 3/22/2005 8:18:55 AM
Masterfully written. If we could look a little closer, we could see their shadows walking...

This one puts the old gray matter to work. Very good imagery. Excellent, actually.
Road (Poetry) - 3/16/2005 1:59:21 PM
this is so well written that it shocked me, coming with such a simple title, i was so pleasantly surprised
Road (Poetry) - 3/16/2005 8:54:04 AM
WoW! Kevin! This is awesome! (And I don't hand out compliments mildly.) I especially like the parallel in your form that echos the metaphor of journey. Also, the reiteration of your list and your correction of road to path shows a new maturity in your work. Bravo!!
Road (Poetry) - 3/16/2005 7:11:32 AM

excellent piece one for the boards!!!
Where Did It Go? (Poetry) - 1/29/2005 7:50:22 PM
The question of fairness in the last stanza sums up the piece. No one has the right to judge another, but few things, if any, are fair.
Where Did It Go? (Poetry) - 1/29/2005 6:19:14 PM
I agree that there is none that should judge but they do without realizing what it does.
