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