Remind Me Not To Mock the Universe

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

  1. Yes, you should be careful when you ask the universe to make things more interesting or exciting. You may get more than you bargained for. Been there, done that, and bought the t-shirt. Sorry to hear about the finger. I hope it heals well and quickly. And for the record, I love Shakespeare, so you can post as much of The Bard’s writing as you like as far as I’m concerned. Just a few of my favorites of his plays are Henry V, especially the St. Crispin’s Day speech, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Hamlet. I have an edition of The Complete Shakespeare with photos from many of the performances in London and Stratford-upon-Avon. Glad to hear you are working on your stories. Keep that writing flowing. I’m trying to tie up some loose ends on a story to finish it this weekend hopefully.

    Wow! I’m so honored to be featured on your blog, Jessica! 😀 Thanks so much!
    And beyond that, the sonnet is beautiful. I think you’re spot on with being accepting of your partner in a relationship and being a kinder, gentler person in general. Great post!
