#MM — Saturday Mix — Lucky Dip — pretty peonies

Old-time Peony Collection

Pretty puffed pungent petals
Prancing pirouetting primadonas
Pastels, pompous pinks,
Peeking, pouncing,
Passels praying
Proud, precocious
Parades primping
Precious pronouncements

 

 

Sarah is the host of Mindlovemisery Menagerie’s Saturday Mix.  Sarah says:
For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Tautogram. The topic is up to you!  The tautogram is best explained by its Greek root words of “tauto” meaning “the same” and “gramma” meaning “letter.” Basically, all words in the poem begin with the same letter.

So pick a letter–any letter–and get poeming!
Note: A variant form of this poem could employ a unique starting letter for each stanza.
