    The PLEIADES poem, attributed to Craig Tigerman, is a seven-line poem in one stanza with a one-word title. Both the title and the lines of the poem begin with the same first letter.

    Although Hortensia Anderson, a popular haiku and tanka poet, added her
    own requirement of restricting the line length to six syllables, there is no set syllable count or rhyme scheme for the pleiades poetic format.


    Example 1 by Craig Tigerman:

    Mything

    Men who are from
    Mars perhaps come
    Masking insecurity by
    Mything dreams in
    Midas-power, touching
    Much in hopes of gold, yet
    Missing Venus' point.
    ----

    Example 2 by Rooster Rou:

    Joy

    Joy,
    Jubilee and solemn ceremony;
    Jesus is remembered this day.
    Join us in the fun and all of the
    Jive of Christmas as the grand,
    Jolly fat man, dressed in red, does a
    Jig high upon the rooftop before he
    Jumps down a dirty ol' chimney.
