Once Upon A Winter Day

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.

    I can see it and it is beautiful. To share pain and make it beautiful is a gift. You, my Dear Jesi have a gift and a heart bigger than any dragon in the universe. ~hugs~

      Thank you, Milady. I don’t know about sharing pain being a gift but the idea of sharing being a gift is a beautiful thought. And you have the biggest heart of all.

    This is so poignant! Reminds me of the poignant video you shared.
    I’m sorry you had to experience this.
    I gave blankets to homeless people more than a few times. I gave coats for children as well.
    I’m grateful every time I think of it that neither I nor my children had to experience this.
    Thank you for sharing this beautiful, heartfelt piece Jesi.
