Explore Your Wild Side

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.

      Thank you. I was a little concerned I may have ended too soon and that I should have added one more stanza but it felt right this way. So I left it. 🙂

  4. This is an amazing piece of writing – the flow, the beat, the movement … it all combines to absolutely perfect effect.

    “I feel the wild wind trip-trapping through my nerves-”

    What an awesome and fascinating line – trip-tapping …. great creation! 🙂
