Watch Out For Lightning

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. “That door that leads to sudden death,

    Is nothing more than a baby’s breath.

    But do be careful if you go through,

    For I may not be so honest or true.” Loved this verse..

    i dont care what is a lie or truth..
    as your words made me smile
    and that is more than enough.

      So glad this made you smile! I’ve never played the game the prompt was based on but writing a poem like this was fun. And everything I wrote about has a smidgeon of truth and lie in it, and I loved writing this.
