Pleiades Q is Like a Warm Quilt


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 Q is Like a Warm Quilt on a 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.

(First Pleiades Q is Like a Warm Quilt)


Quick, shut the windows and lock the doors

Quit the world for your own sake

Quiver and shake behind your four walls

Question the information your given from tv

Quarrel about the news being fake

Question everything you know

Querulous strangeness and a lust to be free

(Second Pleiades Q is Like a Warm Quilt)


Quest for a better land and a bright future

Quantum leap beyond the dilemma I’m stuck in today

Quixotic belief quality and quantity are the same thing

Quicksand of despondency

Quenching my thirst for recognition

Quant reminder I was never a part of the crowd

Quietude has always made my heart sing

(Third Pleiades Q is Like a Warm Quilt)


Quitting has never been an option

Quintessential reason for the dilemma I find myself in

Quotient of emotional trauma

Queasily I stagger through my day

Questioning why I lingered when I should have gone

Questioning my own state of mind and intention

Queen of the weary mind

NaNoWriMo update

I had a good day and managed to write 2377 for an overall total of 35657. Ther is a good chance I will finish the 50,000 words ahead of time, but I’m not sure I’m in love with the story.

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.
