Alight bright--the Pleiades Amidst the calm cosmic pool Aloft Himalaya's peaks Adorning his crown of snow Aqua-blue glittering gems Alive since before the king Always young; always shining
I’ve written this poem (after almost giving up) in the Pleiades form: Pick a ONE WORD TITLE then write a SEVEN-LINE poem of SEVEN SYLLABLES whereby each line begins with the FIRST LETTER of your title. For me it wasn’t easy, it sounded easy enough but after I wrote the first three lines I was stuck. I hope I’ve done the form (some) justice.
The Pleiades (/ˈpliːədiːz/, /ˈplaɪədiːz/), also known as the Seven Sisters and Messier 45, are an open star cluster containing middle-aged, hot B-type stars in the north-west of the constellation Taurus.Wikipedia
