Pleiades in N for Noontime Nap


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 N for Noontime Nap for a restful November day.

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.

Note to self

Nowhere is it written

Nonstop creativity will occur

Now that you’ve climbed out of bed

Needing nifty words to pop into your head

Nimble-fingered hands busy on the keyboard

Nocturnal mind unfortunately still a shapeless, hazy blue

(Second Pleiades in N for Noontime Nap)


Navigating through the hostile terrain of 2020

Naturally, my mind wanders back to a more peaceful time

Neighborhood where everybody knew your name

Nook where the days passed more or less the same

Nippy fall air tingled my nose

Nonchalant about worried beyond our own spere

Noticeable acts of kindness in the atmosphere

(Third Pleiades in N for Noontime Nap)


Nothing will ever be the same

No nemesis but ourselves to blame

Narcissistic naughty society

Nouveau riche with new-fangled

Notions about how other folks should live

Not applying the same standards to our class

Notorious for itching ears tuned into the latest trend

NaNoWriMo update

It’s been a long week. I typed 2091 words today to make my total word count 27934.

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.
