A Poem A Day for 31 Days

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.

    I love both of them. I like how they feel similar in tone, yet are separate. 🙂

      Thank you! So glad you like them. I know why they feel similar. It’s because I’m a little emotional tonight. My biggest baby turned 18 today. Feelin’ it hard. LoL

    I knew you’d be great at this! Thanks for the first poem. You give me far more credit than I deserve. But the second poem- just so good. Really beautiful. You make it look easy.

    So glad you are participating. Hope you enjoy it. 🙂

      Humility is strong in you, padawan. You don’t give yourself nearly enough credit, so I have to. 🙂

      And thanks! Not sure how I make it look easy but I’m glad if it encourages you, too.
      As for the challenge, I like challenges. Brings out the best in me, I think.
