“Waiting is.” Heinlein once said.
Well, anticipation sucks
when you’re waiting for signs of
words, followed by actions, to
welcome us back to living.
Warm, strong arms and maskless smiles
wander, carefree, in my dreams.

Laura Bloomsbury is today’s host for dVerse‘ Poetics. Laura says:
1A. Write a poem using 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.
1B. Since only 6 of the Pleiads are now visible to the naked eye, some Greek legends explore what might have happened to the missing sister, Merope, sometimes called the Lost Pleiad. So you may prefer to write the Pleiades form with just SIX LINES of SIX SYLLABLES instead.
