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.

    So tempting to give up and just throw that wine glass at the wall *HUGS*

    Glad you’re feeling a bit better. Writing is a tough thing to come back from and I’m glad you’ve had plenty of Real going on to help mitigate the after-effects.

    No I have NOT seen the Avengers yet and I WANT TO SO BAD but I think I need to wait and see how finances are, but I keep hearing it’s AMAZING.

    The poem is haunting and beautiful . . . sometimes after migraine writing is charged with so much emotion. I hate to say it, but after anxiety attacks, I know if I pick up a pen something unexpected and usually good comes out – either that or I feel the need to burn the page! I am so glad you are feeling better 🙂 I haven’t seen the movie yet, but my snarky little offspring have and they are torturing me!

      Don’t read my post today then! LOL. It’s all about the movie except at the end where I included a new poem. Just skip right to the bottom!
      I think you’re right. I call after migraine writing “taking it out on the poem” because that’s kind of what I do. It’s better than taking it out on anyone else. 🙂
      And, yes, those poems are totally charged.
