Love October Poetry Writing Month OctPoWriMo

#OctPoWriMo Day 9-Love

 

It feels a bit odd to be writing a poem considering it was I who wrote the prompt for Day 9’s poem. Feels a bit surreal in a way. 🙂

Still, I wrote my poem this morning, and without even thinking about what had inspired me to write the prompt in the first place I titled my poem and made it about the inspiration anyway.  Serendipity strikes again.

Anyway, today’s poem is sugar sweet, a departure from my norm, and I hope it doesn’t give you a cavity.

Happy poeming!

<3 Jesi

 

Love Is…

By Jesi Scott

The relaxing bath after a long, hard day,

The warmth that chases the cold away.

The cool wind that blows ‘midst the summer heat,

The toe-tapping soul-dancing musical beat.

 

The cosy blanket we snuggle up in,

The jolt that sends us into a tailspin.

The light that shines and shows the rocks ahead,

The reason for spending the rainy day in bed.

 

The reason to hold someone close,

The reason your heart to expose.

The reason for my staying near

Is because love brought you and made you dear.

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.
