A Poem About His Eyes

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.

    Nicely done πŸ˜‰ It is difficult to capture the magic in those eyes, but I think you’ve done it well!

    Btw this pesky CJ must be especially difficult throwing out challenges like that πŸ˜‰

      Thank you, CJ.
      I tried to keep in mind that I have a bullseye painted on me. LoL
      Seriously, though, I wanted it to be more abstract than concrete. I assure you, the capturing of any magic was unintentional. I was just trying to portray my own feelings and ideas. And I may have been trying to channel Shakespeare a little.
      And yeah, that pesky CJ. Geez, who does she think I am? Throwing out a challenge like that.

      Aw, thanks…I wanted it to seem more like a sonnet because the peson its about is into Shakespeare and I thought it fitting.
