mingled with love and tenderness
myriad taste of togetherness
meeting by accident or desire
mushy or honey sweet words
mixed with heart’s blazing fire
made the inevitable happen
mate became true lover
Poetry Form: Pleiades – This titled form was invented in 1999 by Craig Tigerman, Sol Magazine’s Lead Editor. Only one word is allowed in the title followed by a single seven-line stanza. The first word in each line begins with the same letter as the title. Hortensia Anderson, a popular haiku and tanka poet, added her own requirement of restricting the line length to six syllables.
