Life Poetry Writing

Something to tide you over

Hello my Lunatics! Tonight I will begin to update the blog. I want to change the overall appearance and characteristics, as well as how it operates. I’ve been very happy here at WordPress, but I’m trying to look at the future of my blog and its growth potential. I want to make it different from other blogs so I’m going to be having a crash course in web design tonight. I love how my blog has been growing recently and I don’t want that to stop but I think it needs a more dynamic view, something with a little more pizazz, you know? Plus, something that fits my personality now. I’m a different person than I was when I started this blog, and I love the growth I’ve done in the past 6-7 months. But I’m not finished yet. (Are we ever?)

For today’s post, I am posting a poem I wrote in 1994. I was watching the rain on my window and the storm that was taking place outside. I was fascinated by it and wrote a short poem about it. Not all poems are long you know. Hemingway wrote the shortest story using 6 words:

elasforyaba

So it is with poems. Sometimes the most exquisite feelings are felt using less words instead of more. So, here is one of my attempts from the past. Have a great Wednesday everyone, and keep checking back to see what changes I make to the site.

Rain At Night

by Jessica Scott

 

Shades of silver

Drip through leaves,

Landing softly on my face.

 

Threads of moonbeams

Line the clouds that flash with light,

And roar with grace.

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.
