Pleiades T is for Testimony


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 T is for Testimony to be posted 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 T is for Testimony)


Testify, sister, please

Tease us with your angst

Tell us all about it

Try not to through a fit

Tedious state of delusion

Tall tale of grievances

Tantalizing our ears

(Second Pleiades T is for Testimony)


Terrible tainted brothers

Tactfully asking for my story

Thespians playing center stage

Taming me with your words

Then I remember who you are

Turning I choose to leave

Thankful I caught on to your trick

(Third Pleiades T is for Testimony)


Threatening echoes in the distance

Travel to where I now stand

Tenacious I rise against them

Taboo in my woman’s rage

Titillated by my new disposition

Trembling as I walk away

Thunder rumbling in the sky above

 NaNoWriMo update

I’m getting close to the finish line. Yesterday, I managed 3062 words tocome up with a total 46145.

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.
