X is for…

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.

      Thank you. No, the words weren’t forced on this one. Once I knew what I wanted to write about the words were easy to find. What I didn’t know was whether my emotion came through.

    So, when I read this I thought about the Disney movie with Keiffer Sutherland and Tim Curry. I think Oliver Platt played Porthos and had this moment where he mocked someone with a sword and it reminded me that i probably would do that. thank you, Milady!! Beautiful poems, all of them. I am so glad to have gotten to know you through poetry and blogging. I do hope that we can miss in real life someday. Oh, the trouble we could get into (especially with Rod and Lizzi there too!) 😉

      I like the Disney version, too…but it was the one with John Malkovich as Athos that I had in mind, but yes, you are Oliver Platt mocking someone with a sword! (I love Oliver Platt.)
      I’m glad we’ve gotten to know each other, too. I live a very understated, quiet life and I’m trying to break out of it and live a bit louder.
