Acceptance - A Pleiades Poem

By: Nan Forehand

always allowed to be me

approval of who I am

as I live and breathe today

assent to my acceptance

assurance freely given

ascribe to my character

Almighty God accepts me

Written May 6, 2009

Note:  This is a modern form of poetry which was invented in 1999 by Craig Tigerman. The Pleiades, named after the constellation also known as the seven sisters from Greek mythology, consists of seven lines of seven syllables each. The title is one word, and each line starts with the same letter as the title. Thanks, Reason A. Poteet, for igniting the spark in my soul to attempt my first pleiades!

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
