Invented by Craig Tigerman, the editor for the online poetry journal SOL Magazine, the pleiades is a 7-line poem in which each line begins with same letter as the first letter in the one-word title. There are no rhyme or meter requirements for a pleiades, though some have suggested the lines be limited to six syllables.
You can read more about this form at Super Forty and The Poets Garret.
I hope you'll join me this week in writing a pleiades. Please share a link to your poem or the poem itself in the comments.
