“Of All The Hearts In The World…

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.

    Wow…I’m speechless. I was intrigued and had ro read this straight away and now I’m trying not to just cry…

    Today, this is just what I needed. It is a balm to my sad soul and oil poured generously across the troubled waters of my heart.

    Thank you. From the bottom of my soul. I choose you, Jesi, and I will continue to do so. \oo/_

      For my part,
      you touched my heart.
      So, from me to you,
      I choose you, too.

        Thank you, so, so much. I had to come back and read this again and make sure it was really real! It *is* real, and you are glorious.

        That line – I recognise the diamond underneath the dirt in you – that is poetic and soul-deep and utterly breathtaking.

        Thank you, Diamond-Jess

          My mom once told me that I don’t take things at face-value. I was about 16 or 17 at the time and I didn’t understand what she meant really. Now I do. I see beyond the cover. She was right.
          And I love that you called me Diamond. 🙂 Tears when I read that.

            I’m rarely inclined to take things at face value, or perhaps I do, but always with a pinch of salt and a proviso that it might not be.

            I don’t remember ever being told how I take things. I was told that I’m too hasty and I jump into things with both feet and then mess up because I didn’t stop to think first.

            I know that I love quick and trust slow.

            I know that I’m intensely quick to perceive a slight, even if none exists, and that’s one of my larger failings, I think.

            I’m glad you saw beyond the surface with me, and SO glad I met you back in OctPoWriMo. Thank goodness for poetry 🙂
