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 Y is for Yes 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 Y is for Yes)
Yearbook lies open on a coffee table
Yummy memories of who we used to be
Youthful reminder of how the pages turned
Yardstick of who we are right now
Yearning to travel back in time
Yours was yours and mine was mine
Yielding to remember just how
(Second Pleiades Y is for Yes)
Yay. I’ve been set free
Yahoo, you have delivered me
Yeoman with your hand in the field
You cultivate my deliverance
Yeti hiding in the frozen snow
Yawning when I heard you were letting me go
(Third Pleiades Y is for Yes)
Yo-yo bounced on solid ground
Years passed in a sort of quiet desperation
Yellowthroat muzzled from making a sound
Yolk of oppression stifling inspiration
Yibbee yammer behind broken glass
Yielding to the pressure with hesitation
Yearning for this year to pass
