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