Beware The Judgement Of The Muse

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

  2. See what you mean about the explanation! Wow! Stressed reading it.
    Go you for even attempting it. I think you’ve done a grand job.

      Thank you Momus!!! I can’t believe I actually did it and it doesn’t sound awful. Yeah, there’s got to be a better way of explaining it. I mean, dactyl, trochee, iamb…honestly. The words make me think I’m writing in Jurassic Park or something. 😉

  3. Great effort powering through the prompt. It gave me a headache just thinking of that strict meter and I didn’t get around to writing anything yesterday. Apart from the form, like the content as well.

      Thank you so much. Yes, the form was a pain. I was able to understand the meter once I began to write, though when I read the description I, too, felt my head begin to ache.

      Thanks Cindy. It really wasn’t that hard to write, it was just seeing the description made me want to hide. LOL
