Dreaming of Poetry

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. Can’t help but think of Yul Brenner, who played in the King and I right up until he died. Lovely poem — I like poetry that tells a story.

    I could feel the atmosphere of your theatre 🙂

    I dream of reading books, 12pt, Times New Roman…lines and lines in the pages (paperback) and as I fall asleep, the words become more and more bizarrely spelled, but they still make sense. That’s now I know I’m dreaming.

      I have weird dreams. I don’t really have nightmares and in fact, I can only recall five in my whole life that scared me enough to wake me up. And I apparently whisper scream. That’s where my throat has locked the sound and no one can hear it but me. I’ve done that a couple of times. LOL. It’s kind of funny. Well, AFTER I’ve calmed down. 😀
