There Is Magic in Synchronicity

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.

  1. In spite of everything, I believe in the kind of magic you believe in. Sometimes I don’t seem to be adept enough at finding it, though.

    Life is On Purpose, somehow, and a little bit what we make of it 🙂 It’s all about choices sometimes, and making the best of things.

      Truth!
      If I hadn’t made the choices I had, even the bad ones, I would not be who I am currently. And I kind of like her. She’s cheeky. 😉

        Heheheh I’m glad you like yourself. I vacillate on that, mostly landing in the negative, but I’m learning.

        And quite – we are the products of our past in that way, if nothing else.

        • Jessica says:

          Yeah, but look what it took to get me to this point. I’d much rather have confidence AND my dad back. 🙂
          But, sometimes it takes a tragedy to get us to live to our potential. And I still have my days…;-)

          • lrconsiderer says:

            I’d rather you had your dad back, too.

            I will have to wait and see what my ‘full potential’ might be. I aim to get to it by the time I’m 41, which gives me plenty of time to figure it out. I hope I don’t have to deal with much more tragedy though, to get there!

            • Jessica says:

              Ppsssstttt. Don’t tell….I’m 42.

              • lrconsiderer says:

                Heheh that’s fine. Wonderful in fact. I am of the firm belief that by a person’s 40’s, they are probably getting to the point where they’re less hung up on the stupid shit which I’m still getting over in my early 30’s.

                It may or may not be true, but it’s what I’m going with.

                It’s interesting – most of my bloggy friends are older than me – anywhere from 35 – 60’s! My BlogWife is in her 40’s. It’s a great decade, I’m convinced.

                • Jessica says:

                  I feel so much more..me…now than I did in my 30’s. I was lost and wandering and still trying to find myself. And, yeah, stupid shit is no big deal. It happens and ya keep going.
                  LOL And actually, people do a double take when I tell them I have an 18 year old son. They’re like “how old where you when you had him”. I’m at the point now where I just smile and ask them how old they think I am. Apparently I look like I’m in my early 30’s.
                  40 is the new 20, with a twist. So much better now than then.;-)

                  • lrconsiderer says:

                    I like that. And I’m glad you get the compliments. That’s cool 🙂 I think a lot of what ages someone is their behaviour, as much as their appearance. Guess you act young 😉 (meant in the nicest way, ofc)

                    I think 40 might be the new EVERYTHING. I’m looking forward to it.

  3. Life is such…..there is a purpose to everything!

  4. This is a WOW response to the prompt…

    Absolutely beautiful, Jess! Love them all! The truth of the first one hits me (in a beautiful and awesome way). Right place, right time kind of stuff. Synchronicity is an amazing thing. I have my own story, I might have to put it to paper, pulp or digital, and share it.

    Hope you have a fantastic day, Love! 🙂

    • Jessica says:

      I would LOVE to hear your story.There is more to mine but the basic truth is in that poem. I am still having synchronicitous events happening, and the fact that I’m able to recognize the power working in my life right now leaves me awestruck. The universe is very present in my life right now, and I’m grateful for it.
      And I am so glad you liked the poems! I read them and think, eh, so-and-so’s is sooo much better. LOL.

    I love your magic, I love your words. All 3 poems are masterpieces!

    • Jessica says:

      Thanks Rod! Not that I think they are masterpieces but I do like the last two. Transcendence is my favorite I think. And I’m glad you like them, too!

  7. Amber Prince says:

    I’d much rather he still be here in the flesh, but I am glad that you met those new people. They seem nice… 🙂
