Social Media Poetry? Absolutely!

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 think this is one of my favourites ever….WOW! Who is this person and how do I find her? OH. MY. GOSH!

    These lines:

    “the absurdity of love’s intricate thread of gold

    binding the weaving of lives meant to touch, not to hold”

    My heart just imploded to ash and glitter…so powerful…so beautiful.

    I LOVE WHAT YOU JUST DID RIGHT THERE!

      I didn’t write it!!
      Seriously, Darwin is an extraordinary woman who writes these bursts of beauty as her Facebook status updates in opposition to the meaningless chatter others put up. All I did was copy and paste and format. I can’t take credit for any of it.
      As for how you can find her, click on her name in my post. It takes you right to her Facebook page.
