Pleiades Form-How To and Examples


Pleiades form

This is a very new form. The Pleiades form was invented in 1999 by Craig Tigerman, Sol Magazine's Lead Editor. The Pleiades is a star cluster in the Taurus constellation discovered by the Greeks and named the Seven Sisters, Alcyone, Asterope, Celaeno, Electra, Maia, Merope, and Tygeta.


The basic form consists of seven lines, each line starting with the same letter as the title, and at first no meter or syllable count was specified. Here is an example of that basic form.








Aspiring

An adequate amount of
Astounding Alphabetical words
Arranged and Alight our poetic
Amuse within our Affectionate
Absorbing minds where
Aspiring words float and scramble to
Another poetical pleasure

Bequeath

Breathless words painted on sheets
Beguiled to the spell cast.
Bringing figments to enter
Blissful dreams where once were bare.
Before I willfully wake
Before the dawning of morn
Bequeath me with one more kiss

Wandering

Wandering aimlessly on
Willing rainbow designed cloud
Waving clouds beside to greet
Which was a blissful sight seen
What pensive vibes secluded
Wanting never to end this
Wednesday morning with sunshine

Zombies

Zombies roam among the
Zealotís in marshlands
Zoned for them alone
Zigzag bits left for
Zoologist to inspect the
Zombies habits while they are
Zestfully playing on the alps Zenith

Willing rainbow designed cloud
Waving clouds beside to greet
Which was a blissful sight seen
What pensive vibes secluded
Wanting never to end this
