dVerse — alliteration (assonance & consonance) — airborne


her wings
opened slowly
silent creaks needing oil
midday sunset flames aglow
confident flaps to fluttering
now lifts, carried sideways
tilting madly

Bjorn is today’s host of dVerse.  Bjorn says:
Today I would like you to try using different types of assonance and consonance in any poem of your choice. Try to listen to how it sounds, and see how you can enhance the connection between the letter you use and the meaning of the poem. Maybe you can add the beat of the poem with accentuated alliteration.

Todays poem is in the form of a butterfly cinquainThe butterfly Cinquain is nine lines with a 2-4-6-8-2-8-6-4-2 syllable count and when centered, creates a butterfly appearance.

      1. I have the same issue! The rest of the time my style is “she tried” ha ha.
        Your photo feels very wild woman, like your joyful essence is being beautifully captured ❤

  1. I often marvel at butterflies — especially when I see one flying over a large expanse of water such as a lake. Their wings are so thin, and their muscles are so small, and their flight is often so buffeted by the wind and yet “carried sideways — tilting madly” they manage to travel HUNDREDS of miles!!! Your photo and your poem are both lovely. Thank you for sharing them with all of us.
