Pleiades X is for Xenia

decorative

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 X is for Xenia 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. We are nearing the end of the month. Coming up with ideas is a bit of a challenge.

This isn’t much of a poem. It’s the letter X and it’s all I got. Therefore, I wrote Pleiades X is for Xenia in November.

Xenia

Xystus in an ancient building

Xanthic hues stream from the passageway

Xebec on the wave less lake

X Factor plays on the loud television

Xeric feeling in my throat

X Ray vision to see around corners and through walls

Xenophobic tendencies in this spy’s heart

NaNoWriMo update

I typed 2566 and achieved 51,216. After typing the end on the final page, I will store this story on a flash drive. Maybe I will look at it in a couple of months and edit it. The one thing I’m certain of is it is far from done. Pleiades X is for Xenia proved to be a challenge, but it is hard to find words that start with the letter X. I thought it was nearly impossible to write a poem using the ones I found.

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.
