Pleiades
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:
*Gift4*Pleiades is formed out of one single word and one seven-lined stanza.

*Gift4*The first line contains just one word

*Gift4* The first line is also the title of your poem.

*Gift4*The next seven lines start all with the first letter of the first line.

My example:


Construction

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?
