Pleiades Y is for Yes


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

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.
