Pleiades in G sharp


In November, I plan to write a series of Pleiades. What are the Pleiades, you might ask? It is a poem with a one-word title and seven stanzas. Each of the stanzas has to begin with the same letter as the one-word title. It is not required for the Pleiades to rhyme. I tried my hand with it using the letter A. Therefore, I wrote Pleiades in G Sharp to post in November.

I also will be providing NaNoWriMo updates. I’m an overachiever. As 2020 wasn’t a big enough freakshow, I decided to do the 50,000-word challenge again.

(First Pleiades in G sharp)


Gloomy prediction tossed in my direction

Gravitational pull bringing it down

Garish explosion guaranteed to make you flinch

Glimpse of a future too dreary to mention

Guttersnipe learning to duck and cover

Gangster with a galvanized frown

Gargantuan gorilla in the room

(Second Pleiades in G sharp)


Gorgeous fickle Daisy

Ghetto chic glitzy and fair of face

Gypsy soul filled with deficient grace

Grandiose affection to drive a man crazy

Gobsmacked, he makes a fatal mistake

Gatsby glimpsing the green light across a frozen lake

(Third Pleiades in G sharp)


Gravel throated screamer

Gagged by a fear so intense

Go/no go the most important decision

Garbage in the alley jump over the fence

Glimpses of graffiti and a glittering streamer

Gambler with words your only defense

Gasoline thrown on a bonfire of derision

NaNoWriMo update

I might be running out of steam, but I managed 2019 words to bring my grand total to 15405.

I am the author of Saving the Hen House. I didn't know when I started it would turn into a series. I love to ride motorcycles, the blues, my family, and going on adventures. This old hen rocks.
