Oh, The Irony

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.

    Nope, not even gonna TRY this. That was really good – felt multi-layered and full of meaning, as well as doing the abbysinnyawhatever thing

  2. I think you did it very well. I certainly could not do better. Well done! Happy A to Z!

    You I like and the poem rocks too. So glad I wandered (lonely as a cloud) from the A to Zed challenge list thingy. The year I turned sixty ( can you imagine the pain of even writing such a sentence?) I wrote 60 poems in 60 days on fb with one of my photos as the prompt. Such a good Emily Dee thing to do. Love a discipline -the more random and self-imposed the better. Well, I’ll be off now to have a sip before movie night in downtown North West River, Labrador (pop. 413).

      Thank you! I’m so glad you wandered and found me. Yes, I can imagine the pain of writing that statement. I heard all about it when my mom turned 60. LOL.
      Wow, 60 poems in 60 days. That’s awesome! Hope you have a great time at the movie. What movie are you going to go see?

  4. When I saw the challenge, I wondered if it would be possible to do something “worthwhile” within the constraints… you’ve shown that it is more than possible! Great effort!
