Poetry Forms Easily Explained - a work of Bianca with additions by kansaspoet
|I saw this form for the first time here on Writing.com and was surprised that I did not have it in my book yet. Pleiades is developed by one of the editors of Sol Magazine.
The rules are really simple, though the poem is more a challenge than I imagined in the first place.
Here are the guidelines:
Pleiades is formed out of one single word and one seven-lined stanza.
The first line contains just one word
The first line is also the title of your poem.
The next seven lines start all with the first letter of the first line.
City in development
concrete transport everywhere
cadence of foundations put in place
centers are unreachable for
children and adults
crying out, frustrations, who
cares about green?
