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.

    Exactly! I really liked yours, and had not heard of this form of poetry before. Thanks!

  2. We were thinking on similar lines with this one… love the way you’ve used this structure, and the break before the last line. Great ending

    I’m so glad you commented so that I would not miss this! So true! thank-you.

    and thank-you for your comment…. A knit blanket for our knees and tea, cookies and books makes winter sound delightful;-)

      I’m behind on commenting. I have a son in marching band and this past weekend was busy the entire time.
      I loved your poem. It was light and playful and anything involving books and tea gets my undivided attention.
