#OctPoWriMo Day 2: Poems and Notes to You

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.

    I love writing fiction poetry as much as memoir poetry. Sometimes a prompt has me seeing a scene play out in poetic form.

    This is great, Jesi, I can feel it.

      Thank you, Willow! I’m really seeing more growth in my writing and I’m positive it’s because of our (almost) daily writing appointments. I think my favorite subjects come from my dreams, when I actually dream in poetry, which happens a lot actually. LoL

    Short and to the point. Exactly.
    Well done!
    I wrote notes today too, but I already published my surrender poem for today, and I have one scheduled for tomorrow, so it’ll wait for a day when I have no inspiration or time!

      Thanks, Dawn! Can’t wait to read all your poems. Still going through the link up list. LoL There were a lot of participants this year.

        And that’s good! I couldn’t participate “officially”, since my blog is private, but I enjoy writing nonetheless. I wasn’t sure I’d have time to write, but apparently my breakdown came at exactly the right time!
