PLEAIDES (for DVerse Poets)

For DVERSE’s Meeting the Bar, Vandana Sharma  Challenges us to write a poem in Pleiades form.  Essentially, it is a poem with seven lines, each line having 6 syllables.   Kindly visit the Pub for more details and responses. 🙂

Here are my Pleiades.

 

MUSIC

My soul was swept away
music wrapped it in waves
mystical and glorious
melodic scales allowed
me to ascend the heights
many dreamed of and then
meekly kissed me awake.

Music Sheet

SELFIE

Picture me as I am
plain as a sunny day
parrying the shadows
pressing upon my soul.
Pretenses are futile
perfection is distant
Persevere. That I must.
