Getting Through The Small Days

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

    If this is what you can manage today, DAMN! This is beauty Jesi. I am sorry you are having a rough day. Remember I believe in you.

  2. Writing a poem, glass of wine, and reading something beautiful sounds like a divine way to end a day. Hope you enjoyed every minute of it. Lovely poem.

      Thank you, Morgan. I ended up with a calming cup of tea instead of wine, but it did the trick and I went to bed feeling much better. And I’m not sure if it was the tea or poetry, but something helped and I had very lovely dreams. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Few poets can do “meaningful” and beautiful in a shape poem… celebrate your success! However dark the day, the rainbows always come, eventually ๐Ÿ™‚
