10 Things You Should Know (If You Intend To Love A Poet) From Peace.Love.Free

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

  1. Smiling and nodding all the way. And I do still have ink stains on the bed sheets. A great take on life lived with words.

      I have permanent marker on my walls, one chair and ottoman, and bed sheets. But those are thanks to my wee beastie, Tornado. LOL
      I do however have a mess on my desk made up of pens, pencils, paper, and odd bits of inspiration. And I have a terrible passion for post-its and bookmarks. Somehow those get trailed everywhere.
      I’m very glad you liked the post. It was fun to write.

      • You too! I have a stationery fetish that draws me into every shop or aisle that contains office supplies. My own office looks like a tornado has it right enough and white board markers don’t really come off of painted walls all that well. :/ But I love being in the middle of it all. A massive tidy up is overdue. And a fresh coat of paint. I blame my muse. 🙂

          Hehe…my walls are a deep red where my whiteboard is. Permanent marker is the only thing that shows up there. LOL
          And stationary!!!! Yes!!! I LOVE stationary. Colored pens, markers, post-its, rubber erasers…makes you deliberately want to create something just so you can use them.

    Beautiful. Maybe one day I’ll find someone who loves me like this.

    • Jesi says:

      I know it’s not how you mean, but Darling, you already do. You have a whole lotta people who love you like this. Me, for one. And I can name at least four others off the top of my head. But, I do know the kind of person you mean. I look for someone like this, too. 😉

      • lrconsiderer says:

        Welll that’s rather a lovely thought. And yes, I suppose if it’s put that way, with a friendship slant on it rather than anything else, then it’s a resounding and glorious YES!

        Huzzah 😀 Thank you for the perspective. And the friendship <3

  4. Serins says:

    Oh yes. Love this. 🙂

  5. Whoa! 😀

    B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. 🙂 🙂

  6. Tracy@CrazyAsNormal says:

    Number 4 – me too. I not only talk back, I argue. Occasionally loudly. Sometimes the voices and I have things that need to be worked out before I can start writing. 😉

  7. Lindsay Weir says:

    omg…I love this <3, story of my life. (Love life anyway :))

    • Jesi says:

      I must admit to some pleasant surprise at how much attention this has received. I thought the original was so gorgeous and had to add my own thoughts. I am so glad you enjoyed it. Story of my own life as well.
