Talkin’ ‘Bout Things

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

    And what a poem! Sometimes I think I should write a poem again, but then I lack inspiration… :-/
    And I don’t have your skill, so… 🙂

    Good thing on the homework. I’m glad to read everyone is winning at this thing!

    Talking about homework… gotta go help my baby with that :-/

    Enjoy Lizzy. It’s always nice to have your friends around, isn’t it? I need to make it happen more often!

      Thank you, sweetie! One day I’ll get to wherever you are. That would be worth a trip, don’t you think?
      And April is coming up with NaPoWriMo…even if you don’t participate online you should check out the prompts every day and see what it inspires. I’ve been under a little blue raincloud for a while and not feeling motivated to write. I don’t know what’s worse: not being inspired to write, or having the inspiration but not the motivation. Just glad I was able to get something down today. It was a great feeling.

        Oh, yes, please come visit! Or maybe I will? Though it’s not looking too bright on the money front right now, so I may not be able for a while 😉

        You are right about April. Depending on a few other things in my life, maybe that’s all I’ll be thinking about, writing poetry to keep me sane, or it’s the last thing I’ll have on my mind, being too busy elsewhere. We’ll see. But I’ll certainly give it a try, I enjoy it very much.
        I do understand the problem with lack of motivation. I have been feeling some of that here or there, whether poetry or not. Ah well… one day at a time 🙂
        I know how great a feeling it can be though. It usually is for me too.
