Forward Into Battle!!!

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

    Oh Jesi! This is beautiful. The imagery, the emotion, the tension…all so well crafted. I know not to piss you off 🙂

      Rofl! Thanks Cindy! But why does everyone keep saying that??? Seriously, I’m, like, so not that bad. I’m totally impotent. All bark, no bite. Ignore the bow and arrows, by the way. LoL
      Really this was more tension release than anything. I love those lines ‘imitate the action of the tiger’ and ‘lend the eye a terrible aspect’.
      I actually have this ornament on my keyring that says ‘though she be but little, she is fierce’. I used to make my best friend laugh because when I get really angry I stomp one foot but that’s about it. She thinks it’s hilarious.
