#OctPoWriMo-Day 5: Denied

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.

    “We never said you were the warrior; / We said, “Beware the storm.” ” — Powerful ending. Here’s to hoping he’s washed away. Never to be seen again….

      Let’s just say he has not been a part of my life for decades and I’m very thankful for that fact. But this was mostly written in response to women everywhere and what we are experiencing right now. Society needs to beware the storm. This is only the beginning.
